United Way of Central Missouri Foundation



In December 2016 the United Way of Central Missouri Foundation provided the funding to purchase a mobile pantry to make it possible for The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri to feed more hungry people, supplementing the dedicated efforts of local food pantries. Over one million additional pounds of food will be distributed annually in our community. Thank you for your past support of the United Way of Central Missouri Foundation. With your help we are feeding more hungry neighbors, families and friends. (Read the full story here.)

Our Foundation

The United Way of Central Missouri Foundation operates to further the mission of the United Way of Central Missouri.  The Foundation was created to provide a safety net in the event of a catastrophic or unforeseen event in our community for future generations. 

The United Way of Central Missouri Foundation was established in September 2003 to build a permanent, sustainable avenue of support for the future through gifts, bequests and planned giving. There are several options to choose from when drafting a bequest. Consult your attorney, financial advisor or another trained professional to help you choose the option that is best for you and ensure that your wishes are communicated effectively.
