United Way of Greater Topeka

For more than 80 years, United Way of Greater Topeka has been improving and changing lives. It began during the Great Depression when a local Community Chest was founded to bring hope and prosperity to the community. Through recessions and depressions, in times of peace and war, and during local disasters, United Way and its partners stepped in and rose to the challenge.

As years passed, this organization was later renamed Topeka United Funds, Inc. It was under this namesake the organization faced a monumental challenge: aiding the community after the infamous 1966 tornado.

In 1975 the organization became known as United Way of Greater Topeka. Today, United Way invests in more than 80 programs, facilitates volunteerism and coordinates advocacy efforts on local, state and national levels.
