For over 100 years, United Way of Dane County has been a change catalyst – bringing the community together to address our toughest issues and most urgent needs. With a mission to unite the community to achieve measurable results that change lives, we are committed to being a catalyst for inclusion and systemic change – building a Dane County where everyone can succeed in school, work and life.

We are so proud of the work we’ve been able to accomplish together over the past 100 years – but there’s still so much work to be done. Our Centennial Year (2022) was a special opportunity to celebrate this incredible milestone while also ensuring another century of impact and innovation for our community.

Together, we are The Power of Many. Working for All.
