It’s Back! Get Ready to be UNITED for Impact from May 9 to 13

April 25th, 2022

Mark your calendars! From May 9 to May 13, YOU can join forces with the collective caring power of central Ohio to give to your favorite nonprofit(s) and unlock an additional $250,000 sponsorship prize money for all 75 participating partners. 100% of your gift goes to the nonprofit(s) of your choice to help strengthen our community’s safety net. This year, we have both United Way of Central Ohio AND United Way of Union County nonprofit partners participating!

Pandemic fatigue is real, but the reality is that the impacts of COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future. No one knows this better than our local nonprofits, which have been struggling to do more for the families they serve with fewer resources, staff and volunteers.

These local nonprofits are joining us to be UNITED for Impact, and they’re counting on you to help them be stronger together!

Every gift, no matter the size, matters because bonus prizes will be unlocked when various levels of donations or number of donors are reached:

✅ Level 1: Unlocks at $60k raised or 500 donors
✅ Level 2: Unlocks at $145k or 1,025 donors
✅ Level 3: Unlocks at $255k or 1,625 donors
✅ Level 4: Unlocks at $375k or 2,250 donors

There are two ways YOU can be United for Impact:

  1. Give directly to up to five nonprofits in one transaction.  Click ‘give now’ or search for an agency in the list on the United for Impact landing page (Go to starting at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 9).
  2. Or make a single donation that is split evenly among the 75 participating nonprofits.

Your selected nonprofits receive 100% of the donation, plus a portion of the unlocked bonus prize money. These dollars are critical to helping strengthen our community’s families and students, and to building a more equitable central Ohio.

So get ready, central Ohio, to be United for Impact and help us spread the word on social media using the #UnitedforImpact hashtag. Every gift adds up to BIG impact for everyone in central Ohio!
