Community Campaign


There are myriad ways for you to join the movement to make a lasting difference in our community. Together, we can do so much more than we can alone. Tell us your passion, and we’ll show you how you can use it for good!


2016 Community Campaign Chairs, Mike and Sarah Messer, are passionate about making an impact in our community. 

Each year, local companies partner with Heart of Missouri United Way to run an annual fundraising campaign to support critical needs in our community. Choosing to make a donation to the United Way through the signature employee payroll deduction campaign makes tax-deductible giving easy!
