Leadership Giving

Leadership Giving

Those who did more and made today a little better.

Webster’s Dictionary describes Vanguard as “the forefront of an action or movement.” Members of The Vanguard Leadership Giving Program are individuals truly dedicated to shaping our corner of the world today and tomorrow.  Vanguards are donors who contribute $1,000 or more to United Way each year.

We come from different backgrounds and do different things, but we come together as one for the community. Choose the United Way leadership giving group that’s right for you.
