Giving Tuesday

United Way of the Ohio Valley is partnering with 70 nonprofit organizations across its six-county region and once again granted access to its mobile giving platform.

Agencies signed up can raise funds online, through crowdfunding/peer-to-peer, and via text-to-give. Anyone who texts “JOIN2021” to the number 71777 can donate to any of the 70 agencies and/or sign up to fundraise on their behalf.

Last year, United Way purchased computer software that gives the community a text-to-give option.

In 2020, they raised more than $68,000 for the community through their platform, matching gifts, and golden tickets. This year they hope to far exceed that number and make an even greater impact. At this time they have $5,000 in matching gifts and will announce matching gift hours via our social media on Giving Tuesday.
