Schwan's Invests in United Way

To show their continued support for the United Way of Southwest Minnesota, Schwan’s Company subsidiary employees and Cygnus Home Service, LLC employees in Marshall, Minnesota recently helped raise $133,358.08. This total investment includes employee donations totaling more than $62,000, a Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation dollar-for-dollar match and an additional gift from Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation. The additional gift from Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation helps to offset the operating costs of United Way, thereby allowing more of the employees’ direct gifts and payroll deductions to go to support the needed services throughout the United Way service area.

Donations will go toward benefiting local initiatives, community partner programs and partnerships that support people and resources focused on improving health, education, financial stability, hunger and safety & well-being in southwest Minnesota.

Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) charitable organization focused on efforts to end hunger, promote youth education and leadership development, and provide essential services that advance the health of the communities where Schwan’s Company employees live and work. The foundation is headquartered in Marshall, Minnesota.

United Way of Southwest Minnesota is proud to have Schwan’s subsidiary employees, Cygnus Home Service employees and the Foundation among its strongest and longstanding supporters. Several members of the Schwan’s subsidiary campaign and the Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation were on hand to present a check to United Way of Southwest Minnesota. Thank you for your investment and for helping your home.

To continue supporting the vital programs serving the community, the United Way of Southwest Minnesota has set the campaign goal at $600,000.00. Contributions can be made online at or via mail at PO Box 41, Marshall, MN 56258. The campaign runs through January 31, 2020.
