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.

Marion Allocation Committee
Comprised of dedicated volunteers representing a diverse range of community organizations, the Marion Allocation Committee is an integral component of our application and allocation process, helping to determine United Way funded partners and programs each year.

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.
