Check out the Community Celebration Videos:

During the most challenging year in recent history, YOU stepped up and made a big impact. At the start of the pandemic, you helped to raise $2.3 Million for emergency response, and 90 incredible nonprofits used those dollars to help individuals and families in crisis. Because of your donation and their hard work, families kept food on their table, stayed in their homes and were able to stretch already limited resources. For this, we are genuinely grateful.

Additionally, our community gave $17.9 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. Thanks to your dedication to this community’s recovery and future, we will be able to continue devoting resources, time and energy to help local families  – this year and beyond. Together, we truly are the Power of Many. Working for All

During an unprecedented year, local organizations and donors gave to make sure everyone in Dane County can succeed in school, work and life. Thank you for your generosity!

Friday, March 19, 11:00 am: Register for our virtual event, Dane County – Let’s Talk About It! This event will feature two local spoken word artists, Opal Tomashevska and Rob Dz. After their performance, participants can share their unique perspectives and dreams for Dane County – helping us realign our efforts and best serve our community for years to come.

Volunteers have been more important than ever during the pandemic – thank you for the time you’ve devoted and the passion you’ve shared with United Way during this historically difficult time. When the world stopped, you didn’t. You came together to meet crisis with generosity and hard work – meeting the increase in need.
