Our office will be closed in observance on Monday, January 21st as we reflect on the great work of Martin Luther King, Jr. As he asked in Montgomery, Alabama in 1957: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” Our normal business hours resume on January 22nd.


One person, on his or her own, may not have much reach. But when we put our efforts together, and leverage the volunteer resources and experienced know-how of the United Way, thousands of lives are changed for the better. We ensure donors’ dollars are invested wisely, for maximum impact, with clear, measurable goals in more than 110 programs across the community. That’s why the United Way matters.



Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we are pleased to announce UWM has been ranked as the seventh best United Way in the country for campaign performance out of approximately 1,200 offices.
