Support Emerging Readers
Reading is not only fun, but a critical component of a child's academic success. We encourage you to support United Way's Emerging Readers program with a donation this month. The program was modified this school year to be completely virtual, while still allowing us to get books to participating students in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties and an opportunity to support local bookstores.

There is still time to join the United Way Equity Challenge!
From education to health to financial stability, people in our community face disparities along racial and ethnic lines. We know that when we Live United, we must Live United for everyone. We’re grateful for those who have led the way, not just in acknowledging the inequities and injustices, but in doing the work and committing to active anti-racism.
United Way of Wisconsin's 21 Week Equity Challenge is just one step toward personal and community growth. We're asking that you, as a Leadership or Tocqueville Society member, join us for this challenge.
Learn more and sign up.
