Make Your Moment to Improve Local Lives

Life-changing moments are all around us — in our neighborhoods, our schools, our workplaces— and when we embrace those moments to help our neighbors who struggle with education, financial stability, or health, we become a community united.

People of all generations and walks of life are looking to make a connection - to make things better, to be part of something bigger.

If you're looking to create life-changing moments throughout our community, there's still time to give toward the $62.1 million community campaign goal to improve local lives.

“Everyone in our community, no matter the size of their gift, has an opportunity to help us achieve the Bold Goals for Our Region and begin to move children and families out of poverty and toward self-sufficiency,” said campaign chair Ted Torbeck, chief executive officer of Cincinnati Bell.

Dollars raised in the campaign fund programs and initiatives such as those that:

  • Prepare children for kindergarten
  • Home visiting programs that help parents give their young children a positive start in life
  • Career pathway programs to help unemployed or under-employed individuals obtain in-demand jobs

Employees at local companies and organizations have also dedicated many hours to serving the community. 11,517 individuals have logged more than 56,700 volunteer hours. Additionally, area companies and organizations have spearheaded 279 local volunteer projects in partnership with United Way.


AT&T employees created their life-changing moment by helping United Way agency partner Talbert House with renovations.

“While slightly behind our pace target, most of our supporting companies and organizations have now kicked off their campaigns, and we’re seeing good results from those campaigns that have wrapped up," said Torbeck. “We’re asking all those now running campaigns to do everything they can to achieve success in these final weeks."
