United Way of the Capital Region


   The United Way of the Capital Region touches many central Pennsylvanians who are in need by funding important programs administered by local nonprofit organizations. Many of the organizations supported by United Way are also served by Messiah students through their service and learning activities with the AgapĂ© Center.

   For more than 10 years, College employees have been encouraged to donate to the United Way during the United Way Employee Pledge Drive.  The Employee Pledge Drive is a Messiah College campaign in which 100% of donations go to a nonprofit of choice. In addition, Messiah College has begun hosting "Movie on the Green," a donation-only event for students and families to enjoy a movie projected over the Eisenhower Lawn.


Thank you for your support! $1,240.97 of the donations went to the United Way Flood Recovery Fund for the Capital Region.


United Way

"Last year, in the midst of the most severe economic downturn in 25 years, Messiah College responded with their most successful United Way fundraising effort ever...We're grateful to our friends at Messiah and feel honored that they see our United Way as a way they express caring and support for those in our community who have fallen on hard times."


-Joseph Capita,

president and CEO of the United Way of the Capital Region
