Giving back to the communities in which we live and work By Kyle Danielson July 25, 2022

Nelnet’s United Way Campaign – Making Magic Happen in Our Communities

The Magic of the Match

Every year, Nelnet holds a United Way campaign to empower our associates to support their communities.

Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is one of Nelnet’s core values. This year, we’re emphasizing how much of an impact we can make with Nelnet “magically” matching every donation, doubling the positive impact (or tripling it, for first-time donors).

United Way advances the common good in communities across the world, with a focus on health, education, and financial stability – the building blocks for a good quality of life.

The Nelnet campaign kicked off on July 18 and will run for a few weeks, encouraging leaders and associates to spread the word and give what they can and help out their communities.

Last year, Nelnet raised over $1 million for the United Way partners in our communities. While we don’t have a specific fundraising goal for this year, we are hoping to raise as much as possible to help out those in need throughout our communities.

We’re encouraging associates to simply give whatever they’re able to. Even if it’s $2 per paycheck, the Magic of the Match will double the positive impact. Associates who donate will also earn electronic raffle tickets for free prizes like gas cards and airline tickets. Together we can make magic happen in our communities.
