The mission of the Columbus Area United Way is to focus resources to measurably improve the education, health and financial stability of our community.
Improve and maintain community public school 4-year education rate
Adults improve job relevant skills
Educating community members on healthy lifestyle choices
Decrease suicide attempts by youth
These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.
Our Service Area
The Columbus Area United Way serves Platte, Colfax, Boone, Nance, Polk and Butler counties.
Raised here, stays here. Ninety-nine cents of every dollar given to the Columbus Area United Way stays in the Columbus area community. The other one penny goes to pay national affiliation fees which provide valuable resources for the local United Way.
