United Way believes in making our four-county community stronger. By working together on critical issues, we can move forward together to ensure everyone has a safe place to live, work, and play.
United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County impacts individuals and families by investing in 220-plus programs at over 110 agency program partners.
United Way brings together partners from business, education, government, faith-based, and nonprofit organizations to work toward common goals, resulting in a better quality of life for all.
Through donations to the Community Fund, we drive lasting change by strategically focusing on the areas of health, education, and financial stability. In addition to our focus areas, we invest in many community-wide initiatives.
