Funds are raised annually through individual donations, corporate donations and United Way special events.

According to Karen Benzel, Director of United Way of Western Nebraska serving Box Butte and Dawes Counties, “I am grateful to be part of a collaborative effort in our community and thankful to so many donors and business that entrust United Way with their charitable giving. By partnering with local non-profits, United Way helps donor dollars go farther and be more efficient. United Way partners can focus on their programs and clients reducing their fundraising needs. The great success of this campaign is a testament to our supportive community.”

Funds raised are used to support local non-profits partner agencies and United Way community impact initiatives that benefit Box Butte and Dawes Counties. United Way partner agencies apply for funding each year and funding is open to non-profits that focus on financial stability, education and better health. Funds available are based on the amount raised in each county as Box Butte County funds are utilized for Box Butte County agencies and Dawes County funds raised are used to support Dawes County agencies. Last year, thirteen non-profits in Box Butte County and four in Dawes County received funds from United Way. Non-profit agencies like East Point Horspice, CAPstone, The Doves Program and Northwest Community Action Partnership Community Services rely on United Way for support.
