Why United Way?

Five Reasons to Live United

Discover why supporting United Way's general fund is the most effective way for you to help the entire community:

  1. Hometown focus
    Our long-term plan helps the most vulnerable people in our 10 county area. You can be confident your investment is staying where you work and live - 99 cents of every dollar goes right back into the Mid-Ohio Valley.
  2. Short-term relief, long-term success
    Our programs build a stronger community for us all. We help people in crisis get back on their feet and help prevent future problems. United Way reports specific, measurable progress each year in our
    Report to the Community. You can see for yourself the positive changes you helped to create.
  3. Community connections
    Our unique ability to work across complex issues with hundreds of community partners is unmatched. We monitor trends, identify gaps and coordinate broad responses to ensure that your gift gets results.
  4. Accountable and efficient
    Our funded programs and initiatives are fiscally responsible. We are an "Organization of Excellence" - granted only to United Way's who meet and exceed rigorous standards put into place by United Way Worldwide.
