On Giving Tuesday, many of us are planning on supporting local charities with monetary donations. If you're looking for a way to leverage your support to have an even greater impact, the Greater Ottawa County United Way is the perfect choice.

When you make a donation to the GOCUW, that gift supports more than 50 nonprofit programs in Ottawa County.

It doesn't even have to be a huge donation; the smallest contributions have a huge impact on local families in the area:

  • $1 per week provides 180 meals for families in need.
  • $2 a week provides transportaion for students to attend 75 hours of after-school tutoring.
  • $3 a week provides nearly $5,000 worth of prescription assistance.
  • $5 a week provides 12 hours of trauma therapy for adults, teens, or children.

Give donations by visiting or text OTTAWA to 91999.
