CINCINNATI, Ohio (August 3, 2021) -
The pandemic year was devastating not only to families throughout our community, but also to so many nonprofits, faith-based groups, and countless other organizations committed to being a resource for the vulnerable.
At United Way, we realized that we were uniquely poised to effectively stabilize and support our community’s nonprofit system of care. With your financial investment and shared determination, we were able to accomplish so much:
COVID-19 Regional Response Fund: At the start of the pandemic, we quickly helped to raise and grant more than $7.2 million dollars in responsive grants.
Flexible Program Funding: We invested $20.6 million in grants to 136 organizations in support of more than 200 social services and programs.
Advocating and Investing in System Change: United Way invested $279,000 in six policy partners to continue to advance systems change.
Administration of CARES Funding to Nonprofits: Advocated for CARES to support nonprofit agencies as they responded to community needs, and administered nearly $2 million of CARES grants to 43 organizations.
I believe that the numbers tell a story, and I believe in transparency. However, personal stories best capture the true impact of our work. Please watch LeAmber’s story – another compelling reminder of why we do what we do.
As always, thank you for your partnership with us, and for your abiding support of the community we love.
