For the ninth straight year, UNMC employees can pledge online through an efficient, secure system now using your UNMC eServ (formerly ESS) password. Paper pledge cards are available as well.

A "no-pledge" option is available online for employees who choose not to donate. If you're unable to contribute, you still are encouraged to access the website and submit the "no donation" response to be eligible for the prize drawings.

Employees can contribute to a host of United Way-supported area organizations or can contribute directly to the campaign, which helps support hundreds of health and human service programs across the Omaha-Council Bluffs-Bellevue area.
