Leadership Giving

Leadership Giving Circle

Members of our Leadership Giving Circle are individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to people in need in north central Iowa. They are people like you – people who care about others in such a way that it compels them to go beyond what is expected of them. The United Way staff and volunteers would like to express their deepest appreciation to each of our Pillars Club members for their determination to create a better future for local people in need.

Not only does it feel terrific to give at a leadership level, but Leadership Giving Circle members also receive the following benefits:

  • Recognition as a United Way Leadership Giving Circle member on our website (unless you choose to have your gift remain anonymous)

  • Special invitations to exclusive events

  • Being the first to hear how our grant money will be allocated to our partner agencies

  • Early registration to participate in our Allocation Process in the spring

  • A personal investment report which illustrates how your gift impacts our community

  • Complimentary tickets to our Annual Campaign Kickoff

  • Networking opportunities with United Way leaders and other leadership donors

For questions or more information, please contact CEO Jen Arends, ceo@unitedwaynci.org.
