Fox Valley United Way: Friday Five

Next week we will gather with family and friends to give thanks. We at Fox Valley United Way are thankful for you, our donors, community partners, volunteers, and Holiday Assistance sponsors. We are passionate about the work we do, but we can only do it because of your support.

From all of us at Fox Valley United Way: Thank you! We hope you enjoy time with your family and friends to share a meal and make memories.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is the global day of giving that follows Thanksgiving. This year, Giving Tuesday will take place on November 29. The generosity of donors allows us to Inspire Hope for a Better Tomorrow. A donation to Fox Valley United Way this Giving Tuesday supports a strong foundation for local families and their children to achieve success in life.

Holiday Assistance – Sponsors Needed!

The ask this year for Holiday Assistance is so great that we still need a few more sponsors for families.
