United is the way to recovery. While COVID-19 significantly impacted many local businesses, the can-do, Greater-Cincinnati way is to help our neighbors. In that spirit, United Way of Greater Cincinnati is launching The Way Forward, a promotional effort focused on supporting both United Way and local businesses.
Every year, United Way relies on workplace campaigns to solicit more than 300,000 individuals for donations that help our community solve its most systemic problems. This year, we’re taking a different approach. We are going directly to donors who want to help their neighbors recover and revitalize. We kicked off our campaign three months early and invited everyone – businesses large and small, both individuals and foundations – to support the many tri-state families in need.
United Way donors care about their communities. They give. They advocate. They volunteer. Now they can go a step further by helping both United Way and locally owned businesses impacted by COVID-19.
WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE
- Provides visibility to United Way’s current donors (about 62,000)
- Increases traffic to your business
- Encourages community giving
WHAT KIND OF INCENTIVES?
This is up to your discretion. We ask partner companies only to offer an incentive to individuals who give to United Way of Greater Cincinnati and qualify for the program. (This will be tracked by United Way.) You can offer a free dessert or appetizer with purchase, or provide a discount to patrons – 5%, 10%, or 15%. It is completely up to you!
While we are focused on supporting individuals and families across our community, we recognize many of those same individuals are your employees, who have been greatly affected by COVID-19. We are looking for new, exciting ways to generate donations to support the recovery and revitalization of our favorite local establishments while continuing to respond to immediate community needs.
