United Way of Dodge County celebrates and respects inclusion. Inclusion refers to the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded. The aim of inclusion is to embrace all people irrespective of race, gender, disability, medical or other need.  

Guiding Principles

  1. United Way of Dodge County fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. 
  2. Inclusion contributes to a more successful and effective organization. By ensuring our governing board reflects the demographics of Dodge County and by implementing practices that foster inclusion, United Way of Dodge County will enhance its ability to meet the needs of our community.
  3. The journey of inclusion is as important as the destination. Inclusion is a journey towards continuous improvement with an agreed set of actions founded on sustained change.
  We believe that each United Way of Dodge County affiliated agency, donor, volunteer, and advocate must have equal access to solving community problems. We commit to using these principles for our organization and our communities.   Note: Affiliated agencies serving a specifically defined population of people are not considered non-inclusive or discriminatory. This Community Inclusion Statement applies to how our organization serves its specific target population, as well as how it handles board and volunteer participation.
