Our community has identified some new ways to improve the lives of our friends, neighbors, and coworkers.
Digital Transformation Efforts
United Way Fox Cities is now working with nonprofits by providing grants that support managed services for improved technology infrastructure. This includes organizational work around digital asset mapping, digital equity, digital transformation, and so much more.
United Way Fox Cities has received funding from Microsoft Philanthropies to launch a new program called Community Skills Initiative (CSI) Wisconsin. CSI helps job seekers and professionals gain new skills for in-demand roles. This suite of resources, accessed through the Community Skills Initiative Wisconsin website, offers access to free online training courses that boost professional skills.
An UpSkill-A-Thon was held to kickstart CSI in our communities. Congratulations to all the winners who received cash prizes for developing new skills!
Participants can choose from courses that offer digital skills, soft skills, or essential role-based skills. All Community Skills Initiative courses are free to complete. Courses can be taken online via smartphone, tablet, desktop, or laptop. All CSI courses are available in English and Spanish.
United Way Fox Cities invites the community to take advantage of the free LinkedIn Learning courses through February 1, 2024. Click here to get started!
Ride United was established to support United Ways and 211s in reducing transportation barriers and helping people in need across the United States. Callers can dial 211 to receive a Lyft ride to access services that address health, employment, food access, education, legal aid, shelter, or economic stability.
In 2022, 211 distributed 287 Ride United codes for a total of 574 one-way rides all across the Fox Cities. If you are in need of transportation, dial 211 to learn about your options.
