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

United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community, because we all win when our neighbors have good health, children succeed in school, and families are financially stable.

Each year, United Way of Washington County asks community members and local businesses to supply the resources needed to make lasting change. In 2016, the Washington County community raised more than $1.4 million to support 25 critical programs at United Way’s 19 agency partners. 

Kevin Steiner, President and CEO of West Bend Mutual Insurance is leading this year’s United Way campaign.

“Washington County is a great place to live and work,” Steiner said. “But some of our neighbors aren’t as fortunate as we are. That’s why we all have a responsibility to give back. My goal is to build on United Way’s past success and raise even more funds for these important community programs.”

This year’s campaign is already off to a strong start with a record-breaking 37 local companies taking the lead as Pacesetters. These organizations are energizing the community by getting an early start on raising funds and awareness. United Way of Washington County’s 2017 Pacesetters are:
