It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. This holiday season — give your voice, time & money to improve your community!
United Way Worldwide Day of Action
United Way Worldwide hosts a day of action each year on June 21st, the longest day of the year. Heartland United Way plans a day for people to take action in our local communities, with a different focus each year.
Each August, campaign coordinators at local businesses are invited to attend the pacesetter kick-off to learn how to host a successful workplace campaign to benefit United Way. Coordinators receive their campaign materials, as well as tips and strategies for making the workplace campaign fun for employees.
Tour of Agencies
Community members are invited to tour the 21 Community Partners on each year. The tour is a great way to learn about the variety of local programs and services they provide and the people they serve. This is an all-day event and a great opportunity to learn how Heartland United Way donor dollars are spent. Please stay tuned for the next Tour of Agencies in 2018.
Heartland United Way kicks off the community campaign at the end of September or beginning of October. The event is typically a luncheon that features a local or national speaker to inspire community members to get involved by giving, advocating or volunteering. Past speakers have included Chris Gardner, author of "The Pursuit of Happiness," former Husker football star Matt Davison and Gloria Wolbach.
12 Keys of Christmas/Campaign Finale
Heartland United Way announces their campaign total each year in mid-December and celebrates the individuals who contributed at a campaign finale reception. The reception includes the 12 Keys of Christmas give away where one lucky donor wins the campaign vehicle donated by Tom Dinsdale.
