Monday Morning Minute

Every week, Brookings Radio interviews a United Way staff and a United Way Funded Partner together to promote the work BAUW is doing, the work our partners are doing, discuss collaborations, and highlight programs and upcoming events. A social media post is created afterward to help spread the message. This is free to our funded partners & you can sign up below!
