Thank You, Dane County!
During the most challenging year in recent history, YOU stepped up and made a big impact.
Thanks to you, we raised $17.8 Million – reaching our campaign goal, even during a global pandemic. The resources raised will help us to fuel nearly 800 nonprofits and more than 50 collaborations that work to support families and individuals as they overcome barriers and access the building blocks of well-being – a quality education, a family-supporting job and health supports.
You can watch the full announcement below. A special thank you to the companies who generated the most dollars for our community and congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 Campaign Awards!
COVID-19 Emergency and Recovery Fund
At the start of the pandemic, our community gave an additional $2.36 Million for emergency response, and 90 incredible nonprofits used those dollars to help individuals and families in crisis. Because of this support, families kept food on their tables, stayed in their homes and were able to stretch already limited resources. For this, we are genuinely grateful.
Collaboration In Action
When we unite the community towards a common goal, that’s when we can make the greatest impact. And now, more than ever, it’s so important that we come together to support our local nonprofits in providing crucial services to those in need!
Because without their expertise and dedication, we wouldn’t be able to create the long-term change that’s needed. Thanks to our nonprofit partners, our donors and our volunteers, we’re building a better Dane County for all. Watch an example of the collective impact we can have below.
To Our Valued Volunteers
When the world stopped, you didn’t. You came together to meet crisis with generosity and hard work – meeting the increase in need.
Thank you for the time you’ve devoted and the passion you’ve shared with us at United Way during this historically difficult time! Watch a special message from us below.
2020 Community Volunteer Awards
Since we were unable to gather last April, we were excited to include the 2020 Community Volunteer Awards as a part of Celebration this year.
During April – National Volunteer Month – we look forward to sharing more about the award recipients and the impact they’ve had in Dane County.
