Purchase of new facility pending

(BLACKHAWK REGION) – Sale of United Way Blackhawk Region’s (UWBR) building located at 205 N. Main St. is pending and the purchase of a new facility will be finalized and announced on August 1, 2024. Additional details will be shared upon the final closure of the properties.

“Beginning June 24th, the lean and mighty UWBR team will be conducting business remotely until the new building renovations are complete,” said UWBR Board Chair Dan Williams. “It’s a highly effective, short-term solution that reflects our commitment to a seamless transition and responsible stewardship of donor dollars.”

Built in 1966 and purchased by United Way of North Rock County in 1988, United Way has owned and maintained the riverfront location more than 35 years. After the 2012 unification of the Stateline United Way and United Way of North Rock County to form United Way Blackhawk Region, staff from the former entities consolidated at the downtown Janesville location where the current occupancy is only 22% of the space.

“Strategically, it makes sense,” Dan continued. “UWBR’s strong financial position enabled us to carefully consider our options and perform our due diligence. Our board is pleased with the outcome and is looking forward to a more centrally located space in the Blackhawk Region.”

UWBR’s mailing address will remain: United Way Blackhawk Region, PO Box 8443, Janesville, WI 53547.
