United Way Funding Important
Even if the Fond du Lac Area United Way reaches its campaign goal of raising $770,000 it would not be enough to fund all the requests they receive from agencies on an annual basis. United Way Executive Director Amber Kilawee says they got off to a good start this year with their two pacesetters Agnesian HealthCare and Fox Valley Savings Bank who gave about $150,000. She notes that annually they receive requests for $800,000 to $1 million in funding. About 30 agencies serving over 30,000 people get part of their funding through the United Way campaign.
