2020 Funded Community Partners


Community Campaign

Collective community impact is at the forefront of our work at United Way of North Central Ohio. Community contributions to United Way are invested in local community partners who undergo a rigorous annual application process and report progress throughout the funding cycle. This Results Based Accountability (RBA) approach asks our partners to answer: How much did we do? How well did we do it? Is anyone better off? This gives us the data we need to ensure we are investing your donor dollars in a way that makes the largest and most lasting collective impact on our communities.

Together, we will overcome our current health and economic crisis and will rebuild to a “new normal” in which our community is more resilient and provides equitable opportunities for every resident. We invite you to support your community through a gift to United Way and urge you to advocate for impact by sharing our mission with family and friends. Together, we can make real changes in the lives of real families in north central Ohio.

Live United: Workplace Campaign

A 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.

Community & Workplace Campaign Toolkit

We appreciate the efforts of local businesses, individuals, and organizations in supporting and administering United Way Community & Workplace Campaigns and are committed to doing everything we can to support each Campaign Coordinator based on the individual needs of their campaign. Available support includes interactive in-person training, annual Campaign Coordinator Luncheon, shared guidance and encouragement from experienced Coordinators, employee engagement support, and United Way staff support and marketing materials.
