Every United Way contribution is a personal commitment to helping others and building a caring
community. Leadership donors, by virtue of giving more –
demonstrates an even stronger caring response to those less fortunate.
Leadership donors are recognized each year in our Annual Report. Tax benefits, of course, make it easier to be generous.
Your Leadership donation of $1000 or more to United Way is an investment that improves the lives of people in need – building a stronger community for everyone.
Leadership giving demonstrates strong community support, loving compassion, and generosity from the heart. Leadership gifts are an inspiration for others to support United Way.
We recognize Leadership gifts at four levels: Leaders ($1,000 - $1,499), Builders ($1,500 - $2,499) Patrons ($2,500 - $4,999), and Pathfinders ($5,000 +).
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.
~Edward Everett Hale
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope...
and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
~Robert F. Kennedy
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
