What is the Leadership Circle?

The Leadership Circle recognizes individuals who exceed the average giving level in our community and make a substantial annual contribution of $1,000 or more.

Community Impact is United Way’s business. By making a leadership gift, you join hundreds of other concerned people who trust in United Way to make that impact and produce smart solutions to meet the needs of the community. A leadership gift is your investment in what matters – bottom-line results.
