Who are our Leadership Investors?
Our Leadership Investors, known as Constitution Society members, give $1,000 or more annually, and Tocqueville Society members, give $10,000 or more, to the United Way Campaign. They invest in an array of nonprofit organizations that they care about, including our United Way.
Members of these exclusive groups come from diverse neighborhoods, backgrounds and careers, using their generosity and expertise to create real, lasting change in the lives of children and families.
Why give directly to United Way?
In addition, those who give directly to United Way, make opportunities possible for children and families right here in our community. They understand and embrace the fact that there must be strategic solutions to our most complex challenges.
They recognize that no one organization or person can do it alone. It is through connecting people and passions they we’re able to make our region a better place.
