Message from Executive Director, Ashley Bender
United Way – a leader in philanthropy with a credo that is worldwide – is a brand you expect accountability and transparency from through results-based community initiatives and investment opportunities. All over the world, United Ways are trusted to serve as a catalyst for positive change.
Locally, I write to you with excitement as we embrace change while remaining focused on providing meaningful and engaging opportunities that are timely and purposeful. With our mission and services at the core of our business model, United Way Manitowoc County’s role has evolved in order to better connect individual and corporate passions, to tackle complex social issues at their root, and to improve the impact of contributions.
As the United Way network embraces today’s society and the modern ways of philanthropy, you can count on your United Way. We are here to serve as a community convener and partner, give value to philanthropy as a resource to shape society for the better, and to lift up gifts and talents to increase community capacity around tough issues.
