Investing In Central Iowa
The funds raised by United Way of Central Iowa—over $27 million in 2016—are invested in various programs and initiatives to attack the very real challenges that people are facing right here in central Iowa, which is why real people just like you help determine where those donations go.
All investment decisions for the funds raised are made by groups of volunteers called "Cabinets." Our investment Cabinets are made up of local experts in the areas of Education, Income and Health in central Iowa.

Each year United Way leads the fight for the health, education and financial stability of all central Iowans by working toward the Community Goals for 2020.
The Community Impact Report, is published each year at the annual LIVE UNITED luncheon, provides updates on progress made toward the community goals for 2020, as well as highlighting the key focus areas in each category of EDUCATION, INCOME, and HEALTH. Specific initiatives and the results they have produced are also included.
