About Us

Great Rivers United Way is working to advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our seven-county service region: Buffalo, Crawford, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau, and Vernon counties in Wisconsin, and Houston County in Minnesota. Great Rivers United Way focuses on the building blocks for a good life:

  • EDUCATION – helping children and youth achieve their potential
  • FINANCIAL STABILITY – promoting financial stability and independence
  • HEALTH – improving people’s health
  • COMMUNITY BASICS – providing access to basic needs like food, shelter, and safety

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy. United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes in the Coulee Region by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in our community working together to create a brighter future.
