ORGANIZATION: United Way of Greater Cincinnati

BEW Opps Image

Black Empowerment Works promotes Black self-determination, social mobility and economic prosperity by resourcing and funding grassroots/community-based, Black-led work. Annually we open the application process to select new grantees. To date, we have invested $1.6 million in 58 ideas and leaders.

As a core tenet of the program, community members make the investment decisions. Reviewers will work in small teams of three to five, reading a subset (approximately 10) of the applications submitted. Through written application reviews and conversations with grant applicants, they will work to identify applicants in their pool they would like to fund. Final funding decisions will be made following the assessment of information collected from all review teams.

Deadline to apply: June 8 at 11:59 PM

Mission Statement

United Way is a leader and community catalyst mobilizing the caring power of individuals and organizations to help people measurably improve their lives.


United Way works every day to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a better life - education, income, and health. We concentrate on these critical issues in order to improve lives and strengthen our communities, and ultimately, to make our region the best it can be.

United Way of Greater Cincinnati was founded in 1915. The annual fundraising campaign became a partnership with American Red Cross, Cincinnati Area Chapter, in 1956. Today the organization covers ten counties: Hamilton, Brown, Butler and Clermont in Ohio; Boone, Campbell, Grant, and Kenton in Northern Kentucky; and Dearborn and Ohio counties in Southeast Indiana.
