New Leadership Challenge Grant 

Leadership donors are instruments of change. They inspire others and create opportunities for tomorrow. That’s why we’re asking you to make a Leadership donation of $1,200 or more to United Way this year. To quickly recover from the many social, economic, and emotional effects of the pandemic, we need community members willing to lead the way.

How you can help

We’re asking you to play this vital role today by supporting our 3-year campaign to raise $5 million by 2023. A Leadership gift made directly to United Way helps us meet the needs of today and to break down systemic barriers in the way of a more equitable tomorrow.

Last year, United Way Peterborough & District provided critical funding to support 230 programs that offer vital supports and services to our most vulnerable neighbors.

CEO Jim Russell shares, “ It is critical that we ensure help continues to be there for people in need, when and where they need it most.” Says Russell, “We’re asking those in our community, who are able, to play a vital role today by supporting our 3-year campaign to raise $5 million by 2023. A Leadership gift made to United Way helps to meet the needs of today and to break down systemic barriers in the way of a more equitable tomorrow.”

Leadership donors give $1,200 or more annually to the local community through United Way.  This program, initiated in 1997, is the fasted growing area of the campaign with 197 Leadership donors contributing more than $440,000 in 2020
