Be a Leader Challenge



Be a Leader Challenge

The challenge fund will provide up to $30,000 to match all new Leadership donations ($1,200 or more) and donation increases*. Your gift will have even more impact thanks to the remarkable generosity of our anonymous donor.


New Donors

As a first-time Leadership donor, when you
make a gift of $1,200 or more to United Way Peterborough & District, the challenge fund
will match your gift dollar for dollar.


*Renewing Donor

As an existing Leadership donor, you can increase your gift to United Way Peterborough & District and the challenge fund will match the increased amount.  For example, if you increase your donation from $2,000 last year to $2,500 this year, the challenge fund will match $500.
