Kirkwood United Way Campaign

Make a Difference

Thank you for considering a contribution to Kirkwood’s annual United Way campus campaign. Together we can make a powerful difference within our community!

About United Way

Did you know that United Way helps support Kirkwood programs?  You can designate your pledge to one of Kirkwood’s qualifying areas:  Kirkwood Foundation, Jazz 88.3 KCCK, Workplace Learning Connection, as well as the Heritage Agency on Aging.  In addition, many fine agencies within our seven-county service area benefit greatly from your support.

Three Great Ways to Get Involved

1. Jeans Day stickers are back! Here’s your chance to wear jeans to work for 15 days. Get your Jeans Day donation form here!

2. Donate online with E-Pledge. (The login is your Kirkwood email and the password is your k-number.)

Your donation will automatically be directed to the United Way agency for the county you work in (either UWECI or UWJWC). To designate any portion of your donation to a different United Way agency (or non-United Way agency), select the “Do you want to designate your gift?” box. Search and select the agency of your choice.

3. Mail your donation. Here’s how to support the two local United Way agencies:

  • To support United Way of East Central Iowa (UWECI), print and mail in a paper pledge form.
  • To support United Way of Johnson and Washington Counties (UWJWC), print and mail in a paper pledge form.
  • For payroll deduction, send the form to Linda Arens in HR (313 Kirkwood Hall).
