Volunteers have been a critical part of WordPlay since our founding. (During our first year, the organization's staff was made up entirely of volunteers!) Whether you're looking to get involved with programs, staff an event or help out behind the scenes, we have a variety of opportunities available—no prior experience required. 

Match Your Gift

Many companies offer "gift matching" incentives when their employees donate to nonprofit organizations. Check with your employer today to see if they will match a donation you make personally.

In-Kind Donations

Donations of books, supplies and other materials help ensure our programs can run smoothly. Please contact us if you are interested in making an in-kind donation.

Shop for a Cause

Support WordPlay programs just by shopping, at no extra cost to you! Enroll in Amazon Smile or Kroger Community Rewards to get started.


Play one of the most integral roles in the stories of our children and teens by sponsoring a program or event. Through sponsorship, you can ensure that the true costs of our work for the community are covered. You'll receive a fantastic social return on investment by providing the gifts of sustainability, continuous quality improvement, and a base for us to expand WordPlay's reading and writing programs for kids and teens across the city. The best part? We're passionate about sharing the incredible stories that sponsors like you make possible with the communities where we work and grow.

Make a Legacy Gift

Making a legacy gift is easier than you think. With good estate planning, you can leverage your assets to continue your legacy for your loved ones and young people through WordPlay Cincy. Plus, there are often tax benefits for you.

If you are interested in making a legacy gift to WordPlay, please contact Chief Development Officer Karen Harshaw at 513-541-0930 or karen@wordplaycincy.org.

Start a Fundraiser

No matter the occasion, we make it easy for you to raise money for WordPlay in whatever way works best: start a collection at church, request donations in lieu of gifts on holidays and birthdays, or create a Facebook fundraiser.
