Creating lasting change


At United Way of Portage County, we do our homework to provide a voice for our neighbors in need. Through your support, we bring people and resources together to achieve measurable results that improve people's lives and strengthen our community. Funding decisions are determined by an all-volunteer group of community members known as Community Solution Teams. These teams are tasked to identify and serve the most current, critical needs of our community's most vulnerable populations.

Every day somewhere in our community, someone needs help. Some are students who need learning assistance. Others are parents struggling to provide food and a safe environment for their families. In order to meet the need of our community, United Way runs an annual campaign. Our campaign is made up of corporate gifts, employee giving, and individual giving. You can give online or print off a 2023 pledge form and mail in your gift. You can also choose to volunteer your time.

Every Gift Matters and Your Support.

Change doesn’t happen alone, but when we are locally invested, we are UNITED together.
