Investing in Community
Your Leadership changes lives.
Leadership donors have the power to be instruments of change. They inspire others and create hope for tomorrow.
To help quickly recover from the many social, economic, and emotional effects of the pandemic, we need community members willing to lead the way.
We are asking you to play this vital role today. 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.
With a donation of $1,200 or more, our Leadership level donors are ready to drive change, willing to set a powerful example and become part of the solution to our community’s complex social issues. Our Leaders are passionate about leaving their mark on Peterborough & District by creating lasting change.
Last year, United Way Peterborough & District provided critical funding to 275 programs that impacted 46,263 people in our community. This would not have been possible without our leader donors. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous sponsor, those who made a new or increased leadership gift to United Way Peterborough & District saw their local impact doubled through the Leadership Challenge Grant.
2023-24 Leadership Challenge Grant
United Way Peterborough & District is excited to announce the return of our Leadership Challenge Grant. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous sponsor, Leadership Donors to United Way Peterborough & District can increase the impact of their donation. During our 2023 Campaign, new Leadership donors (those gifting outright or pledging $1,200 or more in the current campaign) will see their donation matched, up to a total of $200,000. Donors who are already giving $1,200 or more annually and who add at least $300 to their gift will also have their increase matched.
“The legacy of this gift will be to leverage new community support. As we continue to recover from the COVID pandemic it is critical that we ensure help continues to be there for people in need, when and where they need it most.” says CEO Jim Russell.
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 183 Leadership donors contributing more than $485,172 in 2022.
At United Way Peterborough & District, we pride ourselves in our continued success in adapting and responding to the changing landscape of the communities we serve. Each year, we recognize those who go above and beyond, who lead the way and allow us to continue supporting the people in our communities who rely on us. These generous community leaders are listed proudly in our ANNUAL REPORT.
This program, initiated in 1997, is the fasted growing area of the campaign with 197 Leadership donors contributing more than $440,000 in 2020
