About United Way of Greater Cincinnati

United Way of Greater Cincinnati is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building long-term solutions and aligns systems to help families in our community thrive. We do that by bringing people and organizations together to solve problems holistically, using family input and data-driven decisions.

Our services and solutions focus on quality education, health and basic needs, which are the building blocks to financial sustainability and economic mobility. Like the challenges people face, we view these areas as unique and interconnected, with no one single solution.

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.
