Local History

United Way Fox Cities is a community-based organization that came into existence on January 1, 1993. It is the result of a merger between the former United Way, Inc. Appleton/Heart of the Valley and the United Way of Neenah-Menasha. The roots of our current United Way can be traced back to 1947, and organizations called the Community Chest of Neenah-Menasha and the Community Chest of Appleton.
