Leadership Giving

You are here

United Way’s Leadership donors help transform communities.

Our Leadership donors are made up of individuals and families who are passionate about changing lives, committed to creating action, and dedicated to bringing together the expertise and resources that get results. They take on the biggest challenges of our region – empowering families to lift themselves out of poverty and giving every child a chance for school success.

Leadership Giving members are an integral part of providing thousands of individuals each year with programs and services they need to improve their lives. Leadership Giving members support United Way of Madison County with an annual git of $500 or more. These donations are leveraged across the most effective, measurable programs addressing issues in education, family financial stability and health.
