Individual & Leadership Giving

When a group of caring and committed people come together to rally behind a common goal, great things happen.  
Participation in the Leadership Giving Program (gifts of $500 and above) is an indication of a deeper involvement and a resolve to do even more to help others and strengthen our community. The generosity of Leadership Givers helps to change lives and are critical to the success of the United Way of Wyoming Valley. View last year’s Leadership Givers in our Annual Report.

Individual Giving

Gifts of all sizes are meaningful and, together, truly make a difference.

Leadership Societies

The National Alexis de Tocqueville Society

The United Way Alexis de Tocqueville Society was formed in 1984 to deepen individual understanding, commitment, and support for United Way’s work. The Alexis de Tocqueville Society recognizes local philanthropic leaders who are committed to meaningful change in our community. Membership to the Alexis de Tocqueville Society is granted to individuals who contribute $10,000 or more annually to the United Way.

Dorothy Darling Society

Established in 2004, the Dorothy Darling Society was created to recognize donors who generously contribute $5,000-$9,999 annually to the United Way of Wyoming Valley.

The Society was named to honor Dorothy Darling, an area native, who has continued her family’s legacy of generosity to support children and family programs throughout the Wyoming Valley. The distinguished membership in this Society demonstrates that the collective efforts of kind and caring individuals, like Dorothy, can make a compelling difference for those in need in our community.
