The 2014 United Way Campaign - October 1-31

United Way 2014

KU Medical Center, The University of Kansas Hospital, and The University of Kansas Physicians are proud to be working together again in a campus-wide partnership to support United Way of Wyandotte County.

Our employees can relate to this year's theme – Live Heroic – because it's something you do every day, all without superhuman strength or magical powers. Whether you know it or not, you are someone's hero. Perhaps you're a hero to your children, your students, your patients, or your neighbors, simply through your giving and caring nature. This year's theme is about the powerful hero in all of us!

Our campaign will also focus on the power of a dollar. If every employee pledged just $1 per pay period (that's less than the cost of a cup of coffee) - a total of $26 a year - we could raise $288,882 to help people get back on their feet. United Way and its agencies work with people in our community to encourage financial stability, improve education, and promote healthy lifestyles, and they rely on heroes like you to fund these efforts.

When you receive your e-pledge email from United Way, please take a few moments to pledge your financial support. Through our combined efforts – with as little as $1 per paycheck – we can make our community better and further improve the lives of those in our community.

See how far $1 per pay period can go! For more information on United Way of Wyandotte County, visit the website.

Who is this superhero?


This hero is YOU!

Thank you for supporting United Way of Wyandotte County!
