Capitol Federal® Presents Annual Giving Check to United Way
January 3, 2018

Capitol Federal® United Way Campaign Ambassadors Janelle Simmons and Crystal Perez announced the results of the Bank’s 2017 Topeka United Way campaign contributions. Accompanied by Chief Executive Officer John B. Dicus, two replica checks were presented to United Way of Greater Topeka President and CEO Jessica Lehnherr and United Way staff. The first check was made payable to the United Way of Greater Topeka in the amount of $192,131.26. The second check was made payable to all the Bank’s market area United Ways, totaling $335,532.34. The ceremony took place at the Bank’s Home Office, 700 S. Kansas Ave, Topeka.

“Volunteering as a Campaign Ambassador was an amazing experience,” said Perez. “So many people and organizations are committed to making positive change in our community, and the United Way is leading that effort. I’m proud to work for a company that values community service and giving back.”

CEO Dicus remarked, “Our CapFed® employees look forward to the United Way campaign each year. They truly believe, give and live the United Way. With a matching contribution from Capitol Federal Foundation®, CapFed employees are excited to be a part of the positive, sustainable change the United Way provides our communities.”

“I am truly inspired by the consistent level of giving and engagement from Capitol Federal employees,” said Lehnherr. “Thanks to their generous support, we will be able to provide more funding and support to our early education partners to ensure more children are ready for kindergarten, our on grade achievement partners and support for our financial needs partners to ensure more young adults and families have the necessary tools to ensure financial stability.”

Capitol Federal and the United Way have a long-standing tradition. Capitol Federal has donated yearly to the United Way since its beginnings, supporting education, financial stability and community development needs.
