Monroe County

    What’s raised here stays here

    In 2022, Great Rivers United Way funded 31 programs that made a difference in the lives of thousands of Monroe County residents! Twenty-two of our 27 partner agencies provide services in the areas of health, education, and financial stability in Sparta, Tomah, and beyond!

    Last year, Great Rivers United Way invested $230,000 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
