How to Run a Campaign

Welcome to your 2018 United Way of Dane County campaign! You are linking arms with thousands of others and fighting for the education, financial stability and health of everyone in Dane County.

Together, we are the hand-raisers and the game-changers, transforming our community one hour at a time through giving, advocating and volunteering.

United Way is your philanthropic partner of choice, connecting the dots between the change you want to see in our community and those who want to make it happen. I’m proud to say that First Business has been working with United Way for decades. United Way helps engage employees, develop team members, and retain top talent. They help us touch and feel the work that truly makes an impact on people’s lives.

Every minute and dollar we invest in our community will help stabilize families and make our community stronger. If you need any assistance with your campaign, contact United Way at (608)-246-4386 or email With your help, we can move toward our vision of a Dane County where everyone can succeed in school, work and life. On behalf of the 2018 Campaign Cabinet, thank you for your leadership.
