About Us


The United Way of Phelps County works to improve the lives of the most vulnerable citizens of our county, primarily the young and the elderly. UWPC focuses on those agencies with local oversight, local funding focus, local roots, and local implications. Those localized efforts are intended to effect major impacts for those agencies most responsive to our county citizens.


United Way was built on the belief that together, we can accomplish more than any individual or organization can alone.


United Way of Phelps County is a locally run chapter of the United Way Worldwide umbrella organization. Each United Way operates independently and is locally governed. A volunteer Board of Directors oversees our strategic direction and steers our financial decisions.


We help and collaborate with local nonprofit agencies, providing financial, volunteer and advocacy support, and we review these agencies each year to ensure they do the best possible work in the community.


The United Way of Phelps County raises funds through workplace campaigns, community supported events and individual donors. During the more than 50 years United Way of Phelps County has been part of the community; many thousands of individuals have contributed to United Way.


It’s is about taking action – responsible actions that benefit not only us, but our neighbors as well. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the common good for all.

Bringing people together to advance the common good.
