Giving Societies

Join our giving societies

We know that you have many organizations to choose from for your annual giving. To thank those of you able to make annual donations to United Way, we offer membership in our Vanguard, Young Leader, and Community giving societies.

Remember, you can combine your gift with that of another member of your household to earn Vanguard, Young Leader, and Community Giving status.
