About Flat Ron
We have created a Flat Ron version of this year’s campaign chair Ron Olson. Flat Ron spreads the message of United Way through rotating notes on his board.
We are encouraging people to take pictures with Flat Ron wherever they are. In addition, companies can request a standup Flat Ron from us by contacting us here.

2011 Campaign Celebration
United Way of East Central Iowa announced at the Campaign Celebration in January 2012, that its annual fundraising campaign has reached an all-time record of $10,581,690. This is a record-breaking attainment and we appreciate all you’ve done to help us achieve it. Thank you for your continued support of United Way!
Loaned Executive Program
Each year, United Way of East Central Iowa is fortunate to have Loaned Executives to help with the campaign. Loaned Executives act as account mangers by working with United Way staff for 14 weeks to plan and implement the campaign. Organizations support the Loaned Executvie program by either “loaning” an employee to work for United Way or by sponsoring an individual to represent their company.
United Way is grateful to the many organizations in our communities that have supported the Loaned Executive program. The Loaned Executives are critical to the success of the campaign and United Way’s ability to strengthen our communities. If you are interested in becoming a Loaned Executive, please contact us at (319) 398-5372 or here.
