United Way

Together we can strengthen our communities

Nationwide has always been in the business of caring for people. Today is no different. We’re proud to say that our associates come together to make a real difference, and together with our partners, we’re helping to make the world a little bit better for all of us.


The need is great

United Way connects people, organizations, expertise and resources to improve people’s lives and create lasting change in our communities. By focusing on education, income and health — the building blocks of a good life — United Way mobilizes the power of caring to advance the common good.

Our giving history

We’re proud to say that our associates have been giving to United Way since our first workplace campaign in 1951. The Nationwide Foundation began matching their contributions dollar for dollar in 1960. Each fall, Nationwide associates join together to Live United through Nationwide’s annual campaign. Today 70 percent of our associates contribute to local United Ways across the country. In fact, our associates, partners and retirees have pledged more than $127 million since 2000.

More ways we partner

Nationwide executives serve on United Way boards across the country. Our senior leaders serve as campaign chairs, and many of our associates volunteer in United Way community projects.
