United Way Community

United Way Fights for the Health, Education, and Finanical Stability for every person, in every community. 

United Way's Impact and the Community Investment Process

United Way uses its infrastructure and experience to efficiently turn donations into results through its relationships with its many local partnersThe community Investment process ensures that dollars donated to the United Way of the Kearney Area are distributed to the most needed programs and serves each year in Education, Income, and Health. Annually, Community Investment volunteers review funding requests, evaluate program results, and make funding recommendations to the local Board of Directors. Last year, we funded 21 programs through 13 different partner agencies. Any United Way donor who wishes to volunteer their time and expertise can be a part of the Community Investment process.
