About Us

We are made up of problem solvers, difference makers and opportunity creators. Together, we're on a mission to change lives forever in our community by investing in programs focused on education, financial stability and healthy lifestyles. We tackle the tough problems in these areas by funding and partnering with the most effective local organizations who create real opportunities and get results. We prepare kids to graduate ready to succeed, help families leave poverty behind, make quality healthcare accessible and ensure safe places to call home.

Our focus is to discover community conditions needing improvement, design and build long-term solutions in partnership with others, measure results and guide continuous improvement.

More than 50,000 donors, advocates and volunteers are joining us to help change the odds in Lucas, Wood and Ottawa Counties. With YOU, we can create a brighter future for our community!

United Way of Greater Toledo unites the caring power of people to improve lives.

United Way of Greater Toledo envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives.

We believe our strength is rooted in our core values. These values are our legacy and our future.

It is our aim, therefore, that our staff, partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values.
