United Way

To give to United Way of Central Iowa via an online donation, you will receive an email on Monday, November 6, 2017.  The email will be from "United Way <>".  The United Way offers the opportunity to give through payroll deduction, credit card or a check. By selecting payroll deduction, you can make a one-time gift or spread your total gift commitment over a full 12-month period, beginning Jan. 1, 2018. 

Pledges can be directed towards the general fund to help meet community needs or the option to designate a donation to a specific organization.

If you prefer to not give online you can either select direct bill ($50 minimum) on the giving page or contact Nate Reagen 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 online pledge by Friday, Nov. 17th, at 5:00PM.   Note - many incentives require the online pledge to be completed by the end of day Friday, November 10th!  See the incentives page for more detail.

More information on United Way of Central Iowa can be found on their site.   Additionally, this Drake and United Way Presentation highlights why we are partnering with United Way of Central Iowa.
