Our Local Beginnings

United Way of Northern Ozaukee started back in 1950 as a Community Chest founded by business leaders who shared a vision of financially supporting programs providing health and social services to the citizens of Ozaukee County — neighbors helping neighbors. Fulfilling the dream of its early founders has been the mission of UWNO. We are proud to be part of that long history and inspired that our work in the community remains relevant and impactful more than 73 years later.
With a strong volunteer base, United Way of Northern Ozaukee has been an exceptional investment and will continue to be an equally powerful investment for decades to come. It is an organization of remarkable impact — touching the lives of thousands of people, tackling relevant issues facing the community, recruiting strategic partners and investing in programs that drive positive change for the community and its members.
