Welcome to the United Way of Walworth County
We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy good health, a quality education that leads to a stable job, and enough income to support a family through retirement. Together we focus on three building blocks – Health, Education, Financial Stability – for our neighbors, friends, family members and all residents of Walworth County. Join the fight!
The mission of the United Way of Walworth County is to unite communities, increase and focus resources and inspire people to measurably improve citizens’ lives in Walworth County, Wisconsin.
The components of the United Way’s brandmark – the rainbow of hope, the hand of support and the person as a symbol of humanity communicate the important United Way brand characteristics – caring, inspiring, trustworthy and approachable.
How We Help
We achieve our mission by fundraising and supporting over 40 programs and services which are addressing the critical human needs facing the residents of Walworth County.
Walworth County charitable agencies submit funding requests annually, which are reviewed by a team of local experts in the fields of health, education and finance. Grants are distributed in January and July.
The United Way of Walworth County does more than raise funds. We offer programs like Dial 211, an emergency resource helpline, and FamilyWize, a free prescription savings card. We host meetings to unite the agencies we support. We connect projects and volunteers throughout the county and host a Day of Action in June.
