From United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County

Thank you to all who donated and volunteered in 2019!


Each year, thousands of community members show up to fight for what really matters: a home for every family, nutritious food for every student, access to healthcare for every expectant mother, and a family-sustaining job for everyone who needs it. Because of your support, our whole community is stronger, healthier, and more connected – meet the people you’ve helped.

Last night at our Campaign Closing event sponsored by Rockwell Automation, we announced our 2019 fundraising total: $56,155,008!

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated this year!

Volunteers also set a record this year, donating an outstanding 43,162 volunteer hours. Check out Season of Caring sponsor Rockwell Automation’s fun reveal video!

Thank you to the companies and organizations, large and small, who ran a workplace campaign this year, and special thanks to our million dollar companies!

To everyone who joined the fight, all we can say is... thank you!
