United Way brings people together to help make Dane County stronger. One of the ways we do this is through volunteerism – mobilizing the caring power of our community to make meaningful and lasting change. We’re here to connect you with the nonprofits and organizations that serve so many in our community, so that we can make greater impact, together.
