The UW Credit Union Fund for Racial Equity

Earlier in 2021, our partners at UW Credit Union announced the Fund for Racial Equity. This fund was fueled by their desire to help push progress forward and build a more equitable future in Wisconsin and Dane County.

This $1 Million investment from UW Credit Union – along with $400,000 in emergency and recovery funds contributed by us at United Way of Dane County – went towards helping local organizations that aim to improve the financial well-being and capacity of Black, Indigenous and people of color in our community.

This application process is now closed and all recipients have been chosen and awarded.
