United Way brings our community together in strength to address Dane County’s greatest needs. As we are experiencing racial unrest, an economic downturn and a pandemic, this is more important than ever.

In place of our traditional in-person “Community Kickoff” in August, we will offer monthly opportunities to learn more about community issues, participate in remote or socially distanced volunteer opportunities and support the well-being of our neighbors for the remainder of the year. As in the past, we will celebrate our community’s generosity and impact at Community Celebration in March 2021.

Supporting Health in our Community

In 2020, United Way is investing nearly $4.2 million into healthcare in Dane County. These funds support programming to ensure access to healthcare, behavioral and mental health treatment for students and fall-prevention services for older adults.
The holiday season is fast approaching. Add the stress caused by the pandemic, economic crisis and ongoing racial unrest, and there’s no doubt many of us may be struggling. That’s why it’s crucial to make mental health a priority. Our new 211 mental health guided search can lead you to the help you need. You’re not alone.
When a local woman found herself unable to afford a crucial medication in the midst of the pandemic, she reached out to one of our partner agencies for help. They were able to quickly get her the financial assistance she needed so that she could rest easy, knowing her health was once again in her hands.
