About UsOur Mission

United Way improves lives and creates lasting community change in partnership with others.
 

Our Focus

United Way of Racine County advances the common good by focusing on education, income and health: the building blocks for a good life. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when individuals and families are financially stable, and when people are healthy.

United Way funds more than 60 programs and special projects, while also initiating and facilitating systems-wide initiatives to create long-lasting change. Our approach is unique because we not only address people’s immediate needs, we work towards changing the status quo so that people can avoid problems in the first place. It is about investing in the foundation as well as the future.

Our Role

United Way plays a crucial role in our community. No individual or organization can solve our community’s problems alone. United Way brings together community stakeholders, contributors and agency partners to create collaborative and innovative approaches to community issues.
