The United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley raises money through an annual campaign comprised of special events, employee payroll deduction campaigns and corporate partnerships. The support from the annual campaign combines donations from community minded people and businesses that is then allocated out to nonprofit programs through our volunteer allocations panels. We support 40 programs in the upper Ohio Valley that tackle the toughest needs in the Ohio Valley.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column_2][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”16″ ][cs_element_text _id=”17″ ][cs_content_seo]Are you looking for a place to donate money to charity in the upper Ohio Valley, but aren’t sure where there is the biggest need?

Staci Stephen has been an active member of her community since 2001, when she moved back to the Ohio Valley from Columbus, Ohio. She is excited to be turning that community focus toward the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley. With a passion for service in the Ohio Valley, Staci carries the values of hard work, integrity, and outstanding client services into everything she does. Staci has served in the nonprofit world for the past 17 years where she started her nonprofit career at the Augusta Levy Learning Center in 2006. She remained at the Levy Center until this past June when she accepted the Director of Development position at Youth Services System, Inc. Staci has always had a passion for helping others and enjoys volunteering as much as possible for other nonprofits in the Ohio Valley. She is a graduate of Marietta College where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Allied Health and a graduate of Hondros College of Real Estate. Staci was the race director of COLOR ME AU-SOME 5K, one of Augusta Levy’s biggest fundraisers. She was named to the The State Journal’s Generation Next: Top 40 under 40 in West Virginia in 2015. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of Wheeling and OV Connect, is a member of Rotary of St. Clairsville, and is a graduate of the 2017 Leadership Wheeling class. In her free time, Staci is a realtor for Carol Goff & Associates. She currently resides in St. Clairsville with her partner, Gary and their three-legged AussieDoodle, Lucky.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column_2][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”58″ ][cs_element_layout_div _id=”59″ ][/cs_element_layout_div][cs_element_text _id=”60″ ][cs_content_seo]Associate Director – Madison Seavy
Maddi grew up in Wheeling and has always wanted to live in the valley and start her life here. She attended Central Catholic High school and graduated in 2016. She is a recent graduate of West Virginia University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, majoring in Marketing with an area of emphasis in digital marketing promotions.
At WVU, she was a member of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity, and the women’s club basketball team. The last two summers she interned with the Civic Leaders Internship Program at the CFOV. She was placed to work with the Wheeling Nailers and at the Wheeling Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“On top of the program giving me real world experience that I cannot get from a classroom; the Civic Leaders Internship Program has shown me how the Ohio Valley is continuously growing and the efforts put forth to make that happen. This program has made me even more eager to return to the place I call home and aid in making Wheeling a city where people and businesses thrive. I was attracted to the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley because of my background in community service. I instantly fell in love with their mission and values. I just knew I had to get this position because it was everything I could have ever asked for. I am thrilled to be in a position doing what I love and using my skills to help people and my community”, said Maddi.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column_2][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”61″ ][cs_element_layout_div _id=”62″ ][/cs_element_layout_div][cs_element_text _id=”63″ ][cs_content_seo]President – Todd Cover
Todd Cover, President and CEO of Belmont Savings Bank (BSB), has an impressive title –– but what’s more impressive is how he’s both approachable and down-to-earth.
And he truly has a passion for Belmont Savings Bank. “The difference with BSB is we are a community bank. We try to do what’s right for the customer every time. We don’t just look at data and analyze numbers. We like to talk to people and figure out how we can best help them, offer the best products for them, and how we can best service their financial needs. Our team works with each customer to see where we might be able to help.”
He’s determined, whether it’s helping his sons on the baseball field or assisting customers at the bank.
“We want people in the community to come to us with their financial needs, not just one or two products.”
Todd also makes time to give back to the community personally. You just might see him at a ballgame, volunteering in the community, or in a board meeting for one of the many organizations he volunteers on: United Way Board President, Belco Works Board Member, Wheeling Health Right Board Member, Loan Committee Member Appalachian Growth Capital, Loan Committee Member Regional Development Funding Corp, Lions Club Member, and he coaches baseball.
Cover likes attending as many local high school sporting events and college football games as possible, and he loves coaching his three sons – 19-, 14- and 13-years old. “I’m a big sports nut.”
