United Way Campaign Update

The Fond du Lac Area United Way has raised 60 percent of their campaign goal of $770,000. That works out to a little over $458,000 with a couple of weeks left in the year. United Way Executive Director Amber Kilawee says over the past few years they have gone a few weeks into the New Year to make their goal. She says campaigns start later each year and some are year round so typically they don’t make their goal until mid-January to early-February. The local United Way helps fund about 30 programs that serve over 30,000 people through the course of the year.
