Your Giving Tuesday Donation Helps Local Children Succeed

November 16th, 2022

Today is Giving Tuesday! Let’s unite around a common goal: to help families thrive and every child in central Ohio succeed.

Learning loss connected to the pandemic is continuing, and families are struggling to make ends meet due to the rising cost of rent and groceries.

But here at United Way of Central Ohio, we know there’s a deep well of compassion and generosity in our community. We’ll stand with our neighbors. We’ll rally together to support children who deserve to have equitable opportunities. We’ll unite to make positive lasting change. Just ask Josh Williams, a defender for the Columbus Crew. Josh is a strong advocate for United Way and committed to helping strengthen local families and children.

Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar.

Join us today for Giving Tuesday, when your generosity will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 thanks to a generous match gift by the Adam and Stephanie Lewin Fund. Giving Tuesday donations will make an even bigger impact, providing basic needs for more families and ensuring more children reach their full potential.

> Your gift of $25 = 5 books for young learners

> Your gift of $50 = 75 warm meals for children during after-school programming

> Your gift of $130 = six months of supplies for a preschool classroom

PLUS, United Way and Fifth Third Bank will randomly select five nonprofits throughout the day on Giving Tuesday to receive a $500 gift card to spend on their staff. These Appreciation Awards provide an opportunity to show appreciation for our nonprofit partners who have worked incredibly hard to support our community these past several years.

Giving is easy! You can make a one-time, recurring donation OR link a credit card or debit card to round up your purchases to help your neighbors throughout the year! Just click on the link below or the DONATE button. If you’re on social media, click on the donation links on our Giving Tuesday social media posts. Don’t forget to help us make generosity go viral on Giving Tuesday by sharing our posts!

Positive change is happening. But it doesn’t just happen. Change is created together.
