United Way of Greater Cincinnati is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization [Tax ID: 31-0537502]. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Equity and justice are at the heart of our mission. Much of the work we do in our hallmark impact areas – quality education, basic needs, financial stability and health – is based on providing equity. We know Black people and other people of color are disproportionately affected in these areas because of historic racism. Systemic racism continues to undermine the foundations of well-being for communities of color by denying access to opportunity and making it more difficult to secure jobs, housing, healthcare, education, nutrition and equal treatment under law.
United Way of Greater Cincinnati unequivocally denounces racism/ethnic discrimination. We are committed to the values of diversity, equity and inclusion. We will intentionally and deliberately work to dismantle systemic racism and advance equity in our organization, programming, policies, practices and funding decisions. We will advocate for public policy that promotes equity in our community and nation.
