Many think of United Way as simply an organization that provides funds to other nonprofits, but we have evolved beyond that to a very different organization. United Way of Central Iowa is a "Collective Impact" organization. Our real power comes from bringing together local nonprofits, businesses, elected officials and community leaders to collaborate and implement solutions to some of our community's most pervasive challenges.
This is the compass by which we conduct all of our work, and the goal we strive to achieve.
United Way envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.
United Way of Central Iowa is located North of downtown Des Moines on 9th street in the United Way Human Services Campus. This facility, in addition to being our home, provides offices to several human services nonprofit agencies, as well as a conference center for events.
