United Way of the Ohio Valley has partnered with more than 70 regional nonprofit agencies across its six-county coverage area for its annual “Giving Tuesday” fundraising campaign.
Participating agencies who have registered can raise funds online through crowdfunding, peer-to-peer and text-to-give. You can donate by texting “JOIN2021” to 71777 to designate the agency of your choice or sign up to fundraise on their behalf.
“In 2020, we were able to raise over $68,000 for our community through our platform, matching gifts and golden tickets,” said Blaince Mathew of United Way. “This year we hope to far exceed that number and make an even greater impact.”
Currently, United Way has secured $5,000 in matching gifts, and will announce matching gift hours via social media at facebook.com/uwov.org on “Giving Tuesday.” Additional information about the effort is also available on the Facebook page.
