A legacy of doing good. A commitment to doing better.
In 1915, P&G founder James N. Gamble helped create the first coordinated community campaign for charities, which became the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. Since then, United Way has become a global organization engaging nearly 1,800 communities across more than 40 countries and territories worldwide.
P&G is a committed partner on the global level, but also at the local level as the number one supporter of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. United Way’s mission is to help strengthen the building blocks of a strong community by focusing on education, financial stability and health.
Chairman, President and CEO David Taylor joins P&G employees in lending a hand at the Freestore Foodbank.
Giving kids a strong start on education
Millions of kids lack the support they need to be successful in school. United Way is fighting to shift the odds with educational programs like Born Learning to help children succeed. This school-readiness campaign gives families the tools they need to turn everyday moments into fun learning opportunities, so that kids in need are better prepared to start school.
United Way supports other education efforts, including Every Child Succeeds and HIPPY – Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters. In the HIPPY model, home visitors share education packets designed for parents to practice skills and engage in age-appropriate learning activities with their children. While home visitations have changed this year, the need is the same. These programs have shifted efforts to meet families virtually and continue to provide this important support.
Additionally, United Way is working to end the digital divide. In times when kids can’t be in the classroom, families need to have affordable internet so they can stay on track with their education.
Fostering financial empowerment
In communities around the world, families face financial obstacles that prevent a good quality of life. United Way is working to put every person, in every community, on a path toward financial empowerment.
Through various campaigns, United Way provides access to services, including job training, credit counseling and money management programs to help put an end to underemployment and unemployment, so that people can build better financial futures.
Building healthier communities
A person’s zip code should never be a barrier to improving health. Yet for many, where they live determines the health services they have available to them.
United Way is committed to building healthy communities. From introducing grocery stands and community gardens in food deserts to supporting the emotional and mental needs of veterans, they are working to ensure everyone has access to the quality health services they deserve.
Help is at your fingertips
United Way has impacted millions of lives through the many community services they make easily available to those who need them. This includes the funding and operations of a toll-free help line, 211. Staffed by a trained professional 24/7, United Way and 211 help callers find local services and resources for community programs, financial support, health care and even legal services.
