A charitable gift of stock, bonds, or other securities supports the Urban League mission while also providing potential tax savings for you. If you would like to discuss a gift, please contact Edward Lee at 608.729.1211 or [email protected]. Our EIN (Federal Tax ID) is 39-1098146.
Please consider presenting a family member or friend with a donation in their name. Your gesture will honor their special place in your life, or can mark a special occasion like a wedding, birthday, or anniversary. We will send the person being honored a personal note acknowledging their part in helping their neighbors in need. You can also make a donation in memory of a loved one, and we will send a memorial card to the person you designate.

$25/week or $1,200/year will provide a youth like Ariam with their first work experience and build skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.

She was matched with an academic tutor through the Schools of Hope Program and participated in after school college and career exploration programming and a summer internship through the Careers program.
