Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the beneficiary partners of the Combined Campaign?

The partner agencies include United Way of Lincoln Lancaster County, CHAD (Combined Health Agencies Drive), and Give Nebraska.

What is the United Way Impact Fund and why should I donate to it?

The United Way Impact Fund is a pool of undesignated (the giver has not specified a particular agency as the recipient) funds that allows United Way to distribute dollars to address the community’s most pressing needs in the areas of Health, Education and Financial Stability. By giving to the Impact Fund, you are ensuring that your gift will be used where it can make the biggest impact.

How do I know what charity to make a donation to?

As you are making your pledge, we would ask that you donate to the United Way Impact Fund first. A typical family or individual in need of services will be helped by 3-4 agencies and these dollars are critical to all of the agencies that are involved. If you have additional dollars to donate, you are welcome to designate them to an organization with which you have a special connection.

Won't I have more impact by designating my pledge to a charity that I know does good work?

All United Way’s partner agencies do incredible work. And although they are each making a differene in our community, the issues are much too great for an one agency to solve on their own. That’s the power of the United Way and the United Way Impact Fund. By bringing the community together around solutions we can better equip our partner agencies to meeting the need in our community.
