Become a stakeholder in our community’s future.

Join a community movement to help solve issues in the areas of health, education, financial stability and basic needs.

Small Business United (SBU) is a group of local businesses with 75 or fewer employees that are committed to investing in creating opportunities for all to thrive in south central Kansas through United Way of the Plains. While United Way has been bringing businesses, individuals and organizations together to advance the common good for more than 100 years, SBU makes philanthropy easier and more rewarding for small businesses throughout the region. When you partner with SBU, you’re helping meet the most pressing needs of the clients you serve every day.

A open sign hangs in the window of a small business.
