Shockers and United Way - fighting for the education, income and health of everyone in south central Kansas

Whether responding to a global pandemic or a personal crisis, United Way is at work every day.  That's why Wichita State University supports United Way.  We also understand how much Shockers benefit from United Way.  Last year, United Way funded programs helped our employees 404 times.

We're not just looking for a quick fix.  We're out to create positive and permanent change.  Change that lasts for generations to come.  But we don't do it alone.  We need you.  With United Way of the Plains, you are an unstoppable force for good.
