Small businesses play a critical role in maintaining a thriving local economy. Our Small Business Partners are an important,growing family of donors, who are vital to helping us meet the needs of our community. We realize that small businesses have limited time and resources to devote to charitable giving. That's why United Way Alliance has created a giving program tailored to small businesses. Small businesses form the backbone of the Mid-Ohio Valley area economy. For the first time, you are now invited to participate in a unique campaign to unite and create better opportunities for all.
United Way Helps Everyone
When you give to United Way, you are helping fund community-wide initiatives and the very best programs at more than 40 local non-profits, which translates into a stronger community for all of us.
We Make It Easy
By amortizing your gift over 12 months, we make it simple and affordable for small businesses to assume a place of leadership in our community. In turn, you are dually recognized as an individual donor, and as a corporate supporter.
A Culture of Philanthropy
Small business participation in charitable giving enhances team building, elevates staff morale and provides employees an opportunity.
A Small Business Partnership with United Way Alliance means your charitable giving goes further and benefits the entire community with one gift. We tackle urgent community needs, lead partnerships with hundreds of nonprofits, government agencies, policymakers and businesses to collectively solve community-wide problems that one organization cannot solve alone, and show you real, measurable outcomes accomplished with your financial gifts.
