Our Campaign


Our 2020 Campaign is in the planning stage. United Way of Central Missouri's Marketing Committee is comprised of our community's best marketing geniuses--and together, this incredible group plans all the fun elements of our campaign...including our theme, our lawn template cutout, workplace campaign activities around the theme and more! Information regarding our campaign will be available late June; stay tuned to this page for updates regarding our 2020 Campaign. 


At our Victory Celebration on November 7, we announced we exceeded our campaign goal of $2.1 million and raised an incredible $2,220,170! Thank you to our generous community--with your support, we are helping people in mid-Missouri live their best possible lives.


The Greatest Gift on Earth... is helping others live their best possible lives! The 2019 Campaign goal was $2.1 million... we not only reached this goal but exceeded it by raising a projected $2,220,170! We knew this was a lofty goal, but we knew that with the incredible support of our community we would be successful so we can continue to help the hungry, the homeless, the powerless... we thank you for joining the fight because your passion, expertise and resources will help the fight become a win. A win that's not just a short-term contribution, but a long-term solution.

If your workplace is just getting started in its United Way Campaign, have no fear! Step Right Up and join us in our mission to fight for the health, education, financial stability and basic needs of every person in our community! We are more than the fundraisers. We are the handraisers. We raise our hands not only to lead the fight, but to reach out to people who need help... and hope.

The 2019 Campaign theme is Circus with the slogan 'The Greatest Gift on Earth'. Here you will find all the materials you need to host your very own workplace campaign, including digital copies of campaign collateral materials, t-shirt order forms, the link to the 2019 Campaign Video produced and donated by KOMU and more!

We have one life. To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.
