Take the survey: Seeking your input to drive impactful investments

We are seeking community feedback to help shape our strategic priorities and investments. This initiative underscores our organization’s commitment to foster meaningful change in the Quad Cities region.

Over the years, United Way Quad Cities has been a cornerstone of support for countless individuals and families, working tirelessly to address pressing social issues and enhance community well-being. Now, in alignment with our mission to mobilize resources and partnerships to create positive, lasting change, we are turning to our community for guidance.

Through a comprehensive review process involving public data analysis, expert consultations and community engagement, we have identified key focus areas that align with the region’s most pressing needs and its own unique strengths.

To ensure our initiatives are rooted in community insights and priorities, we’re launching a brief survey aimed at gathering input from stakeholders, including donors, residents and community organizations. The survey will seek to identify the most critical areas for investment and intervention, helping to shape our future strategies and initiatives.

Members of the community are encouraged to take 10 minutes to complete this short survey to share your input on community priorities and aspirations.

The deadline for submissions is April 12.

“We recognize that the most effective solutions are those developed in collaboration with the community,” said Rene Gellerman, president and CEO at United Way Quad Cities. “By actively seeking input from our stakeholders, we can ensure that our efforts are targeted where they are needed most and have the greatest impact.”

The survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, will cover a range of topics related to community needs and priorities. Participants will have the opportunity to provide valuable insights that will inform our decision-making processes and drive our investments in the coming years.

“We are excited to engage with our community in this important dialogue,” added Gellerman. “By working together, we can create a stronger, more vibrant Quad Cities for all.”
