2018 Distributions to Funded Programs

Marshfield Area United Way no longer simply raises and distributes money to non-profits. Instead we focus on the underlying causes to our community’s most pressing problems. Our ongoing work focuses on programs in three areas to build a stronger community: Education, Financial Stability and Health.
Human service programs serving these areas apply for funding in the fall. Professionals from all walks of life volunteer for the Community Impact Committee (CIC) to assess program applications, financials and results to make funding recommendations. The United Way Board reviews the CIC recommendations and approves the final funding levels.
If you are interested in learning about your community and getting involved with any step of the Impact Process, call 715-384-9992 or click here to e-mail Paula Jero, Executive Director.

*It should be noted that an additional $40,000 that was raised during the 2017 United Way Campaign has been reserved to address homelessness in our area.

In December of 2017 the Frederic Ozanam Transitional Shelter was closed leaving a gap in services for homeless families in the Marshfield community. The reserved $40,000 will be used for services to help fill this need.
