United Way Leadership Giving

What is a leadership donor?

Being a leadership donor has nothing to do with your job or how much money you make. United Way’s leadership donors, cumulatively give $1,000 or more annually, and are inspiring change for thousands of people in our community. 

At United Way, a leader cares, wants to make a difference, and understands what a tremendous impact a donation at this level can make in addressing our community’s most pressing issues.

Reasons to become a local leader

  • Valuable tax benefits for your donation
  • Invitations to community events and workshops that demonstrate your impact and help you understand local issues
  • Recognition as a Leadership Donor in our annual report
  • Receive monthly email updates on the impact of your support

Ask your financial advisor for tax implications specific to your situation. You can also visit the Canada Revenue Agency website to use their charitable donation tax credit calculator.

Making a leadership gift is easy:

  1. If your company runs a workplace campaign, you can participate in the payroll deduction plan at the $20 per week level.
  2. Authorize monthly donations from your credit card or chequing account at the $85 per month level.
  3. Give a one-time donation by cash, cheque, or credit card. You can donate by mail, phone, or online.
