If You See Something Say, Do, Be Something

Because Change Doesn’t Happen Alone

Everyone is invited and encouraged to advocate for our community, our neighbors, our students, our businesses, and our own well-being. We currently have many upcoming events and programs in need of volunteers, champions, word-of-mouth support, and contributions of any kind.

Your Hours for Ours

Whether you have a couple of hours or several days, whatever precious free time you can donate to the community is always appreciated. Maybe it's helping out at a food shelf, reading to kids, or making a grocery run for a nearby senior. They're all efforts that will make you and others feel good.

Part Financial, Part Feel Good

The generosity of Central Minnesotans is always inspiring, and we want to help even more neighbors with their educational, health, and financial challenges. So feel free to donate at a level that's right for you — from individual giving to a corporate partnership or any custom combination that feels the best. We wholeheartedly welcome donations at any level!

Interests & Inclinations Wanted

Good at math? Art? Basketball? No matter what your talents are, they can be put to impactful and memorable use by volunteering — especially with our area youth who need mentors, tutors, and caring neighbors to guide them forward to their true potential. United Way of Central Minnesota also creates opportunities to join task forces, boards, and steering committees to help guide the focus and efforts of our mission.
