HReneeMoe black and white small fileumbled. Grateful. Thankful for you.

We’re just a little more than two weeks away from honoring your caring power. On Nov. 17, we are celebrating you and the change you will create right here in Dane County. Each year, our whole community comes together to celebrate the awesome power each one of us holds to change lives. Join us for your Community Celebration at Monona Terrace!

More than a thousand workplaces, large and small, are going all out to support this work. From chili cook offs to silent auctions to some extra creative ways we highlighted below, every company showed how much their employees care for this community.

Because of you, more families will no longer be homeless. More adults will earn jobs with a family-sustaining wage. More babies will learn and develop successfully, so they are ready for school. And these families are becoming financially stable, so they can grow strong roots in our community.

These accomplishments are significant not only for these families, but for the entire community. When we achieve these goals together, Dane County becomes a better place for all to live and thrive.

We can’t wait to thank you at your Community Celebration on Nov. 17. RSVP here!

Until then, check out some of the great workplaces in Dane County that came up with creative ways to inspire their employees. Plus, welcome some of the newest members of United Way’s family. We’ll see you in two weeks as we highlight many more awesome companies that we’re so proud to call partners!

EppsteinOne of the newer members to the United Way family, employees at Eppstein Uhen Architects shared why they #GiveUnited:
“I believe that while we shape the community architecturally, we also must be good stewards to the community as a whole.”

“United Way helps the non-profit charities I think matter here in Madison.”

“I believe United Way does good work in my community. I value that Operation Fresh Start, East High School and Dane County Humane Society are supported by United Way.”
