Step Up to Leadership

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then you are a leader. United Way Leaders in Giving choose to make a meaningful difference in the community by giving $1,000 or more annually to United Way of Greater Stark County. Together Leaders in Giving accomplish more than any one person on their own. When combined with other contributions, each individual gift supports measurable programs to help people in our community - children, youth, adults and seniors. Donating at this level is an opportunity for passionate individuals to become more deeply involved in United Way's mission through philanthropic leadership.

Join the more than 750 United Way Leaders in Giving who have made significant commitment to positive and lasting change. The Step Up program allows donors to begin giving at a $500 level and be recognized as a Leader in Giving donor while increasing gifts over a five year period.

Year 1 - donate $500

Year 2 - donate $600

Year 3 - donate $750

Year 4 - donate $900

Year 5 - donate $1,000

  • Participation in United Way Leadership donor events
  • Networking with other community leaders and philanthropists

Together, united, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
