Cornhusker United Way was established in 1982, as a method for combined efforts to address the real human needs of area residents.
          The Cornhusker United Way is a voluntary federation of nonprofit agencies providing services throughout a nine-county area of Southeastern Nebraska.
          Each year agencies submit budgets to the United Way. After which each agency's allocation from your contribution is determined.
          As a result your contribution goes toward meeting a wide array of human service needs in our community.
          The United Way is an investment in our communities. 
          Because volunteer help is utilized and administrative costs are minimal, approximately 98 cents of every dollar you give is put to use in services in your area.



The Cornhusker United Way strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion, with our Board and other volunteers reflecting the many faces, cultures and walks of like that make up the communities we serve.  We respect, value, and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are.  We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities. 

Dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity (including gender expression), sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status,

Family/parental status, income derived from a public assistance program, political beliefs, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity, in any program or activity conducted or funded by the Cornhusker United Way.


It is our aim, therefore that our partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values.
