We’re all in this together.
Corporate social responsibility, at UHM, is about being a good neighbor. Every day, we create space for our Partners to get involved.
Being a good "Partner", extends not only to how we treat each other, but how we treat our neighbors in need.
In order to create positive change and impact in our communities, we have developed several key initiatives that allow our Partners and our company to make a difference by empowering and supporting not only each other, but also the communities that give us so much in return.
To make this a reality, our owner and CEO, Bill Cosgrove, established the Union Home Mortgage Foundation in 2015 to equip families with the tools and resources to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Through our corporate foundation, we support nonprofits with programs centered around two main pillars: financial literacy, and housing. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded over $1 Million in grants across the United States.

How UHM Helps
Partner Donation Drives
Each year, Union Home Mortgage holds at least two signature donation drives throughout our corporate and branch locations. Held in the summer, our Partner Backpack Project provides kids in need with backpacks and school supplies to embark on their educational year with confidence.
During the holiday season, partners across the country participate in our annual food donation drive, known as Partner Up for Plates. During our donation drive, we collect canned goods, and monetary donations, and even pit departments up against each other for some friendly competition.
Volunteerism & Partner Recognition
UHM Partners can impact their community not just with their monetary funds but with their time through our Volunteer Paid Time off (VTO) Program. With this program, partners can volunteer for organizations that matter most to them, learn more about the issues affecting their community, and join their team members on department service projects. Each summer, our interns also participate in an Intern Day of Service at several different volunteer sites across Northeast Ohio.
Partners can go above and beyond, whether through board service or exceptional volunteerism, can be nominated for our annual Partner Impact Awards. Each year, 5 winners are chosen, and in recognition for their achievement may select the charity of their choice to receive $2,000.
