Annual Campaign

"Neighbor Helping Neighbor"

Your donation to the Columbus Area United Way supports the work of our Partner Agencies, Direct Programs, and Community Partnerships.

Ninety-eight cents of every dollar you give stays in our community, making it the best way to help the most people in our area at one time. Donations to United Way help thousands of people who live and work in Platte, Boone, Butler, Colfax, Nance, and Polk counties. 

With your help, we will be able to help even more people by improving opportunities for a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.  

What your donation provides:

  • $25 – provides meals for two weeks for a family in need

  • $27 supports the Imagination Library

  • $50 provides a camp scholarship for a low-income child

  • $100 provides utility assistance for a family in crisis

  • $200 – helps pay for a utility bill for a working family with unexpected expenses

  • $350 – helps provide training for adult mentors

  • $500 – shelters a family suffering through a domestic violence situation

You can also give through payroll deduction - check with the HR department or contact us/call our office (402) 564-5661 with any questions.
