About the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley:


The United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in the upper Ohio Valley.  We do that by raising funding from generous donors and targeting the toughest issues facing our community.    We directly support over 40 programs within 24 non-profit agencies.   While the donor volunteers’ panels decide the allocations amount for each program, the United Way office does the backend work to make sure our donors’ dollars are being spent appropriately.  We require monthly and quarterly reports to find out not only how the money was spent, but what the impact and outcome was of that donation.  Meantime, we are traveling throughout our coverage area (Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel and Tyler counties in WV and Belmont County, OH) speaking about the social service resources available and how the United Way can be used as a community’s giving plan.  We run employee campaigns among small and large companies, connecting employees with the community through giving.

The United Way has five rather large fundraisers throughout the year that bring the community together while helping to cover some of the allocation and overhead expenses.  Additionally, we run the back to school shoe program – Lace up for Kids, administer the Christmas project – Operation Toy Lift, and we host the largest volunteer event in the upper Ohio Valley – Day of Caring.

The United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley knows this community.  We seek out community minded businesses and people, connect their resources with the tough issues our neighbors face, and track the outcomes as they help thousands of families year after year.
