Thank You to Our Leadership Givers! What Does Leadership Look Like To You?

Here at United Way we talk a fair amount about our Leadership Givers - donors who make a commitment to give $1,000 or more a year toward our Community Investment Fund.  Many of them give much more than that $1,000 and a good many also give a lot of their time as volunteers and advocates. 

Did you know that collectively this group of donors contribute close to half of all the dollars raised every year in our community?  That is huge!

Thank you to the following volunteers:
