Over the last few years, we have faced a triple pandemic of COVID-19, racism, and poverty. But together, we accomplished so much. We launched a new homeownership program and are helping 16 families become first-time homebuyers, we placed nearly 500 people in good-paying jobs, we launched a Parent Academy to help families navigate virtual learning, placed 60 youth into their first paid work experience, provided math and literacy tutoring to over 1,000 youth, and now have launched the new Black Business Hub and Black Business Hub Accelerator Program.  Donate today and let’s build the Madison we all deserve.  

The Urban League of Greater Madison is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your gifts and donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law (please consult your tax adviser). Our EIN (Federal Tax ID) is 39-1098146.
