K-State United Way: Give five, change lives

K-Staters know the power of community. That’s why the United Way campus campaign is off to a strong start with dozens of donors giving generously every day.

Together we are supporting local organizations like Sunflower CASA, which last year helped 160 abused or neglected children in its tri-county service region. Local nonprofits can do so much good with each donation to the United Way community fund.

There are five weeks left to join these worthwhile efforts. Pledging just five minutes of your daily pay can make a big difference in local health, education and income. 

Get started online today:

  • Pledge instantly through the new online, secure portal.
  • Alternatively, print a pledge form for mailing to 103 Edwards Hall.
  • See what a “Give 5” pledge looks like for you.
  • Connect with us on Twitter to share why you give and how you're encouraging others to do the same. 
  • Learn about weekly prize drawings to include a vacation day, athletics tickets, a football autographed by Coach Snyder, and more.

Every donation makes a difference, and real change can’t happen without you.
