For nearly 100 years, United Way of Dane County has remained committed to tackling Dane County’s toughest issues in the areas of Education, Income and Health. And while we’ve made great progress, the needs in these areas have only been amplified during this historically difficult time.

People who’ve lost their jobs need food, housing and utility assistance, and parents and students need education resources to help them as they continue to adapt to a virtual learning environment. We expect needs to continue to rise, and for local families to feel the effects of this crisis for a long while to come.

But there’s always hope. With your help, we can continue down the road to recovery into 2021 and beyond – building a Dane County where everyone can succeed in school, work and life.

United Way of Dane County’s physical office is currently closed, but staff are working remotely during regular business hours.
All of our services, including 211 are running at full capacity. Additionally, donations and other documents can still be mailed to our office.
