Monroe County

    What’s raised here stays here

    In 2022, Great Rivers United Way funded 33 programs that made a difference in the lives of thousands of Monroe County residents! Twenty of our 27 partner agencies provide services in the areas of health, education, and financial stability in Sparta, Tomah, and beyond!

    Great Rivers United Way invests more than $200,000 a year in Monroe County. Please join our efforts to make this community an even better place to call home for you, your family, neighbors, and friends with a gift to Great Rivers United Way.

    Your gift of $1/week ($52/year) makes an impact – it provides:

    • Boys & Girls Club memberships to two Monroe County youth living in poverty
    • A habitability inspection of a new housing unit for a Monroe County family facing homelessness
    • An entire month’s worth of food for a Monroe County family of three
