United Way of Greater Winona
"We support families as they raise healthy, thriving, productive children in our community. Our passion is early childhood education and literacy"
United Way of Greater Winona does not accept designations.
Since 1943, United Way of the Greater Winona Area has brought together people and resources to build a safety net to help meet the needs of our friends, neighbors, co-workers and families.
Live United. A credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.

Making a difference in Minnesota:
In 2012, our local public school district implemented a kindergarten readiness assessment. There are several private and charter schools located in our community, as well. We want to ensure that all children are prepared for kindergarten, so our organization paid for the assessments for the children at the other schools. We will continue this the next couple years. At the same time, we are providing funding for several new early learning projects, which will help out smallest community members learn how to read and get prepared for school.
