United Way’s mission is to unite the community to create measurable results and change lives, mobilizing the community’s caring power to stabilize and empower families. Through significant community listening and understanding community data, United Way prioritizes education, financial stability, health and how we treat each other as the building blocks of a stable life and thriving Dane County.
With thousands of volunteers, tens of thousands of donors and hundreds of thousands of community relationships, United Way convenes cross-sector collaborations to articulate community-built change plans and metrics; engages the community in giving, advocating and volunteering to get proximate to issues and resource these plans; and evaluates progress, strengthening collaborations and accountability for results.
These collaborations have increased graduation rates, decreased family homelessness, and increased employers’ hiring pools of diverse and committed employees. (More results at https://www.unitedwaydanecounty.org/)
