Lead The Way.
“Great leaders inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.”
– John Quincy Adams
As one of United Way’s leadership donors, you are inspiring change for thousands of people in our community. Being a leadership donor has nothing to do with your job or how much money you make. At United Way, a leader cares, wants to make a difference and understands what a tremendous difference a donation at this level can make.
In 2016, 458 leadership donors in Guelph, Wellington and Dufferin jointly contributed over $703,000 to the Campaign.
Double The Impact Of Your Gift
The Leadership Challenge Grant will match up to $80,000 in Leadership donations ($1,000 or more), which means your Leadership donation will now do twice the good!
How it works
New leaders: As a first-time Leadership donor, your gift of $1,000 or more to United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin will be matched, dollar for dollar.*
New Leaders in 2017: Continue as a Leadership donor for a second year in 2018 and your donation will be matched with an additional 25%. For example, if your first Leadership donation was $1,000 and you give $1,200 this year, the Grant will add an additional $300.
*up to a maximum of $80,000
Your leadership gift may afford you a significant tax benefit.
If you are a first-time donor, you may be eligible for an additional 25% tax credit on the first $1,000 you give. Ask your financial advisor for tax implications specific to your situation. You can also visit the the Canada Revenue Agency website to use their Charitable donation tax credit calculator
Making a leadership donation is easy:
- If your company runs a workplace campaign, participate in the payroll deduction plan at the $20 per week level
Authorize monthly donations from your credit card or chequing account at the $85 per month level.
- Give a one-time donation by cash, cheque or credit card. You can donate by mail, phone or online.
