Leadership Giving

The Leadership Giving Program

The Leadership Giving Program was created for those who are committed to advancing the common good in south Wood and Adams Counties.  Leadership Givers provide passion and inspirational leadership that enables United Way to drive real change.

The Leadership Giving Program:

  • Recognizes exceptional gifts
  • Involves new and influential leadership
  • Encourages increased personal giving

In 2017, 237 Leadership Givers donated $221,856.36 which is 36% of the United Way campaign.  You are invited to lead the effort and become a cornerstone in building stronger local communities!

You can become a member simply by donating to United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties (click here).  Combined household gifts of $500+ qualify.
