United Way Annual Campaign Raises $3.7M

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – During a press conference Wednesday at Austintown Fitch High School, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley announced that its annual campaign raised $3,742,311 last year. It was the first time the organization exceeded $3.7 million in its 105-year history.

For Eric and Bethany Carlson who served as co-chairs for the 2023 campaign, it wasn’t about breaking a previous record.

“What it is about, it’s about funding the work and being able to let the work be able to kind of survive and go through,” Eric Carlson says. “We need money to be able to do all of these programs.”
