CHAD Celebrates 30+ Years of Partnering with United Way in Lincoln Area
The Combined Health Agencies Drive (CHAD, chadnebraska.org) is celebrating more than 30 years of partnering with the United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County. Having begun working together in 1989, this partnership is playing a particularly vital role in these health-stressed COVID-19 times.
“Health affects absolutely everyone in the world regardless of their demographic, as we’ve seen with the pandemic,” said CHAD CEO Michelle Grossman. “We are the only drive in the state that focuses solely on health issues that affect us all, but our friends, family and neighbors facing health challenges need support from United Way’s funded partners, too. That’s why we’re so grateful for this partnership.”
The United Way/CHAD campaign in Lincoln raises funds through workplace giving and individual donations from caring community members. Together, the campaign funds more than 60 nonprofits who are working together to help those in need—truly providing one unified voice and asking for the largest health and human services campaign to serve the community in such a critical time.
CHAD is a local, donor-driven organization that has been raising funds for Nebraska’s premier health charities for more than 40 years. Since its inception, CHAD has raised $59.7 million for charities supporting those in need in our community. Valuable donations help Lincoln citizens in need by providing care and support for those affected by a health diagnosis; funding education and prevention programs in our community; and supporting advocacy and medical research.
