United Way of Central Iowa

Together, United Way of Central Iowa and Drake University strengthen our local community by leading the fight for the health, education, and financial stability of all central Iowans.

Once a year, in an effort to fund these labors, Drake University faculty and staff hold a fundraising campaign. In 2019, we wrapped up our campaign on Friday, November 15, and we raised more than $54,000 from 541 donors, representing 54% of our full-time employees. The latter is another record success! Year after year, our employee’s generosity earns Drake University the distinction of being the #1 United Way campaign among colleges and universities in central Iowa.
