United, We Created Hope in 2023

We are grateful for the continued support of many generous donors who fund programs spreading hope through Brookings County. Hope looks different for each family and individual, but our community's desire to help others remains consistent.

2023 brought to life what was always considered a dream: a shared space for nonprofits to increase collaboration and share resources. The new building at 908 Hope Drive has already impacted the organizations located here. This building also serves as a meeting location for other nonprofits and service groups and a place to see generosity in action!

With our funded partners working toward social issue solutions, the Brookings Area United Way will continue to have leadership roles in the Resilient Communities initiative and the Brookings County Mental Health Coalition. In 2024, Brookings will become an Early Learners SD community with BAUW as the backbone organization to lead this collaborative effort. We invite all residents to become involved in making Brookings the best we can be through our Volunteer United program.

On behalf of the board of directors and our funded partners, we thank those who have supported us and look forward to what 2024 will bring.
