United Way of Dane County

Founded in 1922, United Way of Dane County's mission is to unite the community to achieve measurable results and change lives. United Way focuses on Education, Income and Health issues - the building blocks of a stable life. Through six goals that our community identified as critical, United Way is committed to changing lives: - Children are cared for and have fun as they become prepared for school. - Students succeed academically and graduate from high school, regardless of race. - More people are on pathways out of poverty. - There is a decrease in family homelessness. - People's health issues are identified and treated early. - Seniors and people with disabilities are able to stay in their homes. Through strategic partnerships and collaborative work, we facilitate bringing the many voices of Dane County around a neutral table to find common ground and make progress, while providing organizations and individuals the opportunity to give, advocate and volunteer.
