Small Business Making a Big Impact

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 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.

How we say thank you

  • Logo placement and business bio on the United Way website, listing in quarterly e-news to 600+ subscribers, recognition in the annual  report, frequent mentions on social media and recognition at special events
  • Individual recognition as a Pacesetter, eligible for all benefits of this leadership giving society*
  • Lend your voice to the United Way funding process and help decide which non-profits receive United Way funding by being included on the Citizen Review Panel*

Make it Matter

You work hard to make a living and when you give back to your community, it should be with a trusted partner that is making a measurable impact. Together, we can change the story for those who work hard but fall short.
