Our Fundraising Efforts
We collaborate funds from various industries, businesses, and individuals in the area each fall. Even in 2020 when COVID restrictions were in place, we were still able to raise a good amount of funds from our partner corporations, with more than $100,000 pledged. Every March, the companies that have raised the most funds are recognized at Ohio Valley United Charities’ “Breakfast of Champions.” Our 2019 award recipients include:
DOW Chemical Carrollton Plant (Gold Award)
KU-LGE Ghent and Bedford Power Plants (Silver Award)
Nucor Steel Carrollton Plant (Bronze Award)
Our Golf Tournament Fundraiser
We kick off our fundraising efforts by hosting a golf tournament where we can collect the amount necessary for our organization’s annual expenses. We also use proceeds from this event to pursue our special projects, such as the area “Back Pack” initiative. In 2019, the tournament raised approximately $12,000.
All donations made to OVUC flow directly back to the five communities we serve. In 2020, we gave more than $165,000 to 34 separate organizations. Amounting to approximately $3,000, our own expenses for publications, postage, and advertising are paid through our golf tournaments’ proceeds.
