This Year's Project: Health, Education & Financial Stability
MISSION: To improve lives by uniting the caring power of our community. It is not enough to feed a hungry family or protect a child from violence; we need to change the conditions that led to hunger and violence in the first place. United Way works together with businesses, individual community members, nonprofits, schools, faith groups, government & the media, because it takes the whole community to get the kind of results we need. We believe in advancing the common good by fighting for the Health, Education, and Financial Stability of every person in Siouxland.
The ability to effect positive change begins with a single act: Your decision to give in a way that matters to you. Whether money, time, or your voice; your action is combined with those of your neighbors and together the power to make an impact is multiplied. The generosity of our community enables us to provide funding for outcome based programs and collaborative projects that address core needs and achieve lasting, measurable results.
- Each year, dozens of local volunteers review funded programs to ensure that every donation received by United Way is being put to good use.
- 100% of your gift will stay right here in Siouxland for local programs and services thanks to our Corporate Champions.
- United Way supports programs that serve the tri-state community, reaching approximately 40 miles from the center of Sioux City.
