About Leadership Recognition
Unless Leadership donors choose to remain anonymous, they are recognized in the publicly-distributed Leadership Giving Roster. Each donor’s professional affiliation may also be listed. Occasionally, United Way volunteers host special events to acknowledge the important role Leadership Givers play in the general United Way campaign and our community.
