TOPEKA, Kan. – Capitol Federal® is proud to announce the results of the Bank’s 2021 Topeka United Way campaign contribution. The Bank is also proud to reveal the grand total of our 2021 contributions to United Ways across all CapFed® market areas. Chief Executive Officer John B. Dicus presented two replica checks to United Way of Greater Topeka President and CEO Jessica Lehnherr and UW Staff. 


The first check was made payable to the United Way of Greater Topeka and totaled $182,538.90.


A second check was made payable to all the Bank’s market area United Ways and was the grand total raised by all contributions from CapFed employees in Wichita, Salina, Emporia, Manhattan, Kansas City, Lawrence and Topeka. This second check totaled $306,392.92. 


Capitol Federal CEO John B. Dicus remarked, “Being a part of the positive, sustainable change the United Way provides our communities is a tradition our Capitol Federal employees have supported since the beginning of our partnership with this great organization. The True Blue® generosity of our CapFed employees is doubled by a dollar-for-dollar match from the Capitol Federal Foundation®, and the funds are especially important during these challenging times.”


“We are so grateful for the generosity of everyone at Capitol Federal,” said Lehnherr. “We know we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are working alongside our partners to help individuals recover and move forward – whether that’s helping families with their most basic needs or ensuring children have the support and resources they need to start Kindergarten ready and stay on track in school. Investment from our community is what makes this kind of transformative work possible!”
