United Way of Central Ohio is a
volunteer-driven organization

Concerned and compassionate citizens created United Way of Central Ohio to help people in need and make our community a better place for everyone.

Today, we are mobilizing the caring power of thousands of individuals and central Ohio employers to advance the common good.  Together, we are working to create opportunities for a better life for all.  We are joining hands, opening our hearts, lending our muscle and finding our collective voice.

Campaign cabinet volunteers provide leadership in developing and implementing successful workplace campaigns.

Campaign Cabinet leaders create and implement specific strategies that will bolster workplace, corporate and individual giving strategies. The Cabinet raises awareness about our Community Impact work in the areas of Education, Income, Health, and Home.

Cabinet volunteers are top executives and community leaders who implement and monitor outcomes within their respective areas of expertise for United Way of Central Ohio.
