Day of Caring 2018

We know that to many United Way is well known, but not well understood. That’s why we want to make sure you know what we do.

At United Way of Mahaska County, we fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every Mahaska County Resident.

We bring together donors, volunteers, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based, community leaders, government, experts, and those in need. Together we seek out Mahaska County’s toughest challenges, set sound strategies and goals, and then tackle them at their roots… in a UNITED WAY.

But that still may not answer the question “What do you do?” 

In a nutshell, United Way of Mahaska County does these four things:

UNITE

We bring together community stakeholders like our donors, volunteers, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based, community leaders, government, experts, and those in need to identify challenges in the areas of Education, Income and Health.

 

STRATEGIZE

Each challenge is broken down to its root causes, and together United Way and the stakeholders develop research-based comprehensive strategies to make significant and sustainable progress on addressing central Iowa’s toughest issues.

 

TACKLE

Once the strategies are set, it’s time for action. We invest in or create initiatives designed to move us steadily toward the goals for 2020. We convene coalitions, advocate for public policy, raise awareness and mobilize volunteers.

 

EVALUATE

We create metrics and continuously measure and evaluate the results of these investments, holding every initiative accountable to ensure they are making real progress.
