The United Way offers the opportunity to give through payroll deduction, direct bill, or a one-time gift. Pledges can be directed towards the general fund to help meet community needs and goals or the option to designate a donation to a specific organization.

Make your gift via the United Way giving page.

  • If you prefer to not give online you can either select direct bill ($50 minimum) on the giving page or contact your campaign captain for a hard-copy pledge form.
  • If you are choosing to donate to both United Way and Iowa Shares you must make a separate pledge on each organization's page. Click here to go to the Iowa Shares Giving page.

Please complete your pledge online, by Friday, Nov. 13, 2015. By checking the payroll deduction box, you will be able to spread your total gift commitment over a full 12-month period, beginning Jan. 1, 2016.
