COVID-19 updates 

These unprecedented times require an unprecedented response. United Way of Greater Cincinnati is leading a cross-sectional, regional relief effort designed to respond, recover and revitalize. We are meeting with the key players in our community’s response. Tracking need. Coordinating relief efforts. Filling gaps.

This global crisis is changing lives right in our own backyards. Some in our community – our family, friends and neighbors – will be disproportionately affected by this pandemic.

How can you support?

This is a long-term effort. Thank you to all who have supported us and helped their neighbors. To those who still want to make a difference in this crisis, there is still time.
