Protecting and Preserving the Ohio River Corridor

WWC Has Joined Community Shares of Cincinnati!

On February 12, the Board of Directors of Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati has voted to accept the Western Wildlife Corridor for membership for 2020! So just what exactly is Community Shares? As a 501(c)(3), Community Shares has been in existence for 23 years, has 30 non-profit memberships and is in 13 workplaces. Community Shares works with non-profit member organizations to promote their work, mission and support its member organizations through workplace giving campaigns. WWC is a great fit under the “Environment and Nature” category at Community Shares. During the 2020 Fall Fundraising Campaign, workplace employees can pledge donations to WWC via payroll deduction. Some of the workplaces include the University of Cincinnati, City of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Public Schools, Hamilton County, Miami University, Cincinnati State and Northern Kentucky University. This supports our outreach program with exposure to well over 30,000 employees! It’s our opportunity to educate workplace employees about who WWC is and what we do! Donations will come to WWC each quarter starting in 2021. WWC’s annual donations should increase each year as we get more and more exposure. In addition to generating unrestricted funds, WWC will have opportunities to learn from other member organizations and find ways to partner and collaborate on future projects.
