People usually think of United Way as a fundraising organization—but that’s just part of what we do. Our years of experience tells us the best way to help the most people is to focus on the root causes of our community’s most critical issues. So we not only develop resources, we invest them in programs and services that address those issues.
United Way brings people together from all over the community-government, business, faith groups, other non-profits, and citizens-to identify and tackle our most serious problems. We build partnerships with other funders, municipalities, and community organizations, as well, because it takes the whole community to make this work.
Most important, United Way gets results. The Sauk Prairie United Way agencies & volunteers make sure the programs we fund are getting the results our community needs. Through a system of annual review, United Way can benchmark progress and ensure our donors that their money is used efficiently and effectively.
