Our History

The Marshalltown Area United Way (MAUW) was established in 1929 under the moniker of Community Chest to raise funds in a united appeal for the operating expenses of community-accepted charitable, health welfare, and character-building agencies. Marshalltown Area United Way became affiliated with the United way of American in 1962. Since then, MAUW has been leading the fight for health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.

We believe these are the building blocks for a good quality of life. United Way recruit's individuals and organizations who bring passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done. You're invited to be a part of the change. You can give, you can advocate, and you can volunteer. That is what it means to LIVE UNITED.
