Volunteering your valuable time is one of the most impactful ways you can get involved with United Way of Central Iowa, and make a true difference for our community.

United Way mobilizes thousands of volunteers in central Iowa each year, including individuals and groups working to improve homes and neighborhoods, collect food, clothes and other essentials for those in need, or give their time to read to or tutor our at-risk children. We also organize group volunteer activities to provide excellent team-building activities for employers and organizations either on-site or off-site, while providing valuable service to those in need in our community.

The Give Back Iowa Challenge supports employers in engaging their employees in community volunteering. This is a great opportunity for employees who already volunteer to receive recognition by tracking and reporting their hours or for your employees that may be first-time volunteers to try something that could develop new skills or enthusiasm for their work.

After registering, you'll receive toolkits, templates, and support to make it even easier to engage your workforce.  Employers with highest average number of hours per employee will be recognized with a visit by the Governor or Lt. Governor in the coming year.
