Governor declares September and October as United Way Months

Volunteer

Governor Tony Evers has designated the months of September and October 2019 as United Way Months in Wisconsin, in recognition of the launch of United Way annual campaigns throughout the state.

The 40 United Ways across Wisconsin each work within their local communities to meet local needs, using funds raised locally. Together, United Ways fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.

In 2018, Wisconsin's United Ways, serving as the primary source of private funds, collectively raised over $118 million to support human services. Wisconsinites have many ways to give, advocate and volunteer with United Way to be a part of the change and help build a brighter future for all.

Last year, United Way of Portage County raised $3,125,180 and provided funds to 30 programs. This year’s campaign goal is $3,050,000. Leading the 2019 campaign are Doug Munsey of Ki Mobility, Jeff Budelier Recycled Office Environments, and Les Dobbe of Lineage Logistics.
