United Way Campaign Gives Back to Local Communities

October 16, 2014

For 19 years, Nelnet has remained true to one of our Core Values of giving back to the community by partnering with United Way, a non-profit organization that Tim Sabo, Nelnet’s United Way Campaign Co-Chair, says “addresses a community’s macro-level needs.” During the month of August, associates from all of our company locations spearheaded fundraisers to benefit the non-profit and its community outreach projects. To further support the communities in which Nelnet operates, we chose to match any donations or pledges made by associates, effectively doubling overall donations and contributions. Together with associate pledges and corporate match, Nelnet accumulated more than $550,000, a 7% increase from 2013.

In addition to making pledges, associates engaged in a number of friendly competitions that included penny wars, pies in the face, and “associate in costume for a day.” A bake sale, an ice cream social, and a pancake feed were also organized to increase funds.

The Nelnet United Way campaign’s main purpose is to provide assistance to those in our surrounding communities. Collected funds aid local organizations such as food banks, women’s centers, and educational programs. This campaign is just one way Nelnet holds true to its belief of giving back to those around us.
