Giving impact a voice in improvement and fundraising

As United Way of Dane County prepares for their 100th anniversary, they partnered with the Local Voices Network to gather 100 conversations to inform the planning for their next 100 years.

United Way of Dane County trained 25 community stakeholders to facilitate  virtual 90-minute LVN conversations in order to collect diverse stories, experiences, and perspectives from the Dane County community. United Way did focused outreach to community members who have worked their way through financial challenges, such as eviction or homelessness, unemployment or a lack of access to quality, affordable childcare to ensure the voices of people most impacted by those issues in our community were centered in these conversations.

United Way of Dane County is listening to and lifting-up diverse voices in the community – because they know more than anyone what they need. They will use what they learn to realign their efforts and funding priorities to best serve the community as a part of their Centennial Celebration.

United Way of Dane County is truly thankful to LVN for their creativity and for being nimble enough to solve pandemic-sized challenges! With their support, our effort to engage members of our community during the COVID-19 quarantine didn’t miss a beat. Thank you, LVN!
