Thank You
for Celebrating with us...

... at our Annual Community Gathering!

On Thursday, August 18, UEDA's Staff and UEDA-logo 3Board of Directors welcomed our Members, Community Partners and Volunteers to Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub for our annual evening of thanks and celebration.

We began the evening with a recap of our work over the past year and shared the following highlights from our
2015 Impact Report:

  • Engaged over 350 individual professionals in projects such as Take Root Milwaukee, Food Enterprise Development Network, Small Business Affinity Group and Money Smart Week Milwaukee.
  • Promoted trustworthy resources to the public through Take Root Milwaukee and Money Smart Week Milwaukee. For example, we coordinate the production and distribution 10,000 Money Smart Week Milwaukee Resource Guides each year. If you'd like Guides to distribute to your clients and/or residents, etc. please contact us!
  • Grew the UEDA membership network by 11% in 2015, and since last August, staff
    have conducted over 30 Stakeholder meetings to find out how we can better serve our Members.
