Individual & Leadership Giving

When a group of caring and strong people come together to rally behind a common goal, great things happen. By partnering with the United Way, Leadership Givers preserve the well-being of the community and, in turn, deserve special merit and recognition.

Participation in the Leadership Giving Program is an indication of a deeper involvement and a resolve to do more. Support through Leadership Giving affords new opportunities to provide for local residents in need, and makes a positive impact on health and human service issues in the Wyoming Valley.

Leadership Givers are compassionate people committed to achieving results and making a positive difference in peoples lives. They have both the motivation and the resources to provide for our community, while inspiring friends, peers, and associates to follow their remarkable example. They lead the way by their commitment and integrity, and their willingness to make a powerful statement about their desire to care for and strengthen their community.
