Mark your calendars for United Way Campaign Week at UMKC: Oct. 23 to 27


There will be fun and rewarding ways — big and small, campus-wide and in your department — to give to those who need it most in Kansas City.

United Way of Greater Kansas City sponsors strategic initiatives, collaborating with community partners, aimed to help children read, high schoolers graduate and veterans thrive at higher levels.

You’ll learn more details about how you can help in next week’s UMATTERS.
