What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The United Way is always looking for ways to support our community by being involved with a variety of community collaborations and coalitions. Currently looking to work with Community Partners to address substance abuse issues facing our community; work with the newly formed Union County Suicide Coalition to raise awareness and make more mental health resources available to those who are in crisis; seek solutions to help those who have transportation needs and continue to find ways to help people located basic resources (food, shelter, access to health) when they are in need.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The United Way of Union County's goals are to be informed on existing and emerging needs of the community. Work with other Community Partners to help meet those needs whether they are business partners, nonprofit partners or other funding organizations in the community. We also want to be able to collect better data regarding the outcomes of the programs and services that we fund. Continue to be a valued community partner that is forward thinking and acting. To help elevate the nonprofit social serve network that serves Union County, Ohio.

Continue to network with Community Partners and attend Community meetings to determine the needs facing our community.
Use data sources to establish true needs, find proven remedies to meet those needs and create data collection tools that determine program effectiveness. Continue to work to strengthen our fundraising capabilities in order to be a meaningful, supportive Community Partner. We established a Nonprofit Education Committee that conducts two to three free nonprofit training opportunities each year.

Our Director is active in a variety of community meetings including the Chamber of Commerce, Social Service meetings, and Governmental. This allows our organization to be in touch with a variety of people and entities to hear about needs and programs.
We have a dedicated Administrative Coordinator who tracks our donor database and manages our online grant application platform.
Our Community Investment Committee is a group of very dedicated volunteers who review each of our Partner Agencies each year to determine their effectiveness in providing the programs we fund.
Our Campaign Committee is also a group of dedicated volunteers who work on helping us raise the funds.
Our Advisory Council is very engaged in the oversight of the organization and has the desire to perform on our mission.

Moving toward an impact and results focused Community funding partner is an on-going endeavor. We have developed new tools for gauging the success of our funded partners and ourselves that help us to determine if we are making a difference in our community. Most recently we affiliated with United Way of Central Ohio to pool back office resources. All money raised in Union County stays in Union County along with a dedicated staff and offices. We continue to be creative and innovative in our approach to fundraising so we are a visible and viable Community Partner. We have developed more collaborations with other Community Partners in order to make a more significant impact than any of us could on our own. We have sought out new solutions to new problems and to those that had not be adequately addressed in the past.
