United Way’s donor networks provide opportunities for philanthropic Kansas Citians to address our community’s most pressing issues…together. They are united by generosity, passion and a drive to reach systemic-level change. The Waymakers™ in each of these donor networks gather on a regular basis, recognize the problems our community is facing and work together to make a difference.
United Way of Kansas City Donor Networks
Each donor network has different benefits, events and access points. We also offer a multi-year Step Up program, where you can make a three-year commitment to reach the donor network level of your choice. By committing to a donor network or Step Up program, you will gain access to the benefits at that level. You are eligible to join a donor network regardless of whether you give through a workplace campaign or as an individual donor.
