Contributions to the campaign benefit four important federations – United Way of Greater Toledo, Community Health Charities, EarthShare Ohio and Northwest Ohio Community Shares – which together represent nearly 200 nonprofit organizations throughout the greater Toledo area.

“I give to UToledo Cares each year because there is so much need in our community and I can target my gift to support urban food programs and environmental protection." - Heidi Appel, dean, Jesup Scott Honors College
“I give to the UToledo Cares Campaign as a way to give back. I’ve been fortunate in my personal and professional life to be blessed with good health and gainful employment. I now wish to share with those that truly need help so as to improve their wellbeing and provide a path forward in their lives.” - Rick Swaine, chief executive officer, The University of Toledo Medical Center
