COVID-19 RESPONSE AND RESOURCES
United Way of North Central Ohio is mobilizing to direct resources and support to the agencies who are tasked with meeting the needs of the community during this COVID19 outbreak and its consequences. Please consider making a donation to the United Way of North Central Ohio’s Community Relief Fund – all donations will be used to support the near- and long-term COVID19 response efforts in our community, and you can designate your donation to be used in Crawford, Marion, or Wyandot.
We’ve added a COVID-19 Response & Resources page to our website to use as a clearinghouse for parents, seniors, and others looking for local information and advice. We’ll be adding information as we receive it, but circumstances are changing continually; please check with individual agencies and organizations to confirm.
2020-2021 Community Partner Grant Application & Funding
In order to help protect the health of the community and in compliance with the executive order issued today by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, we have postponed our Pathway to Funding: How Donor Dollars Lead to Change training meetings. The meetings will be scheduled if and when possible.
The 2020-2021 Community Partner Grant application period opened on March 16, as planned. The online application is available here. Recognizing the additional stress and time constraints that partner and prospective partner agencies are under as they respond to the outbreak, we have extended the application due date to April 30. The approval and funding cycle remains the same.

Our United Way of Crawford County is committed to tackling the root causes of our community’s most challenging problems, implementing and supporting innovative strategies and ambitious visions of our future. Our Bold Goals are a collective vision for making our region stronger for everyone who calls it home.

United Way Workplace Campaign
The United Way Workplace Campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you’re part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.
Employers who participate in workplace campaigns find benefits beyond the immediate impact in the community, including more engaged employees and an enhanced spirit of corporate volunteerism.
