What is Leadership Giving?

Communities depend on leaders for inspiration and guidance and United Way depends on its Leadership Givers for the same. Leadership Givers recognize that it takes a commitment of resources to provide individuals and families the help they need to improve their overall well-being. Leadership Givers are a driving force for positive lasting change in Forsyth County.

Leadership contributions are helping us work toward creating opportunities for a better life for all in Forsyth County. This year's Leadership Circle, those supporters who gave $500 or more to United Way of Forsyth County, comprised $916,286 or 49% of United Way's total funds pledged during the 2016 campaign. Their kindness is not only an immediate benefit to the individuals and families receiving services, their generosity makes our community a better place to live.

United Way of Forsyth County is truly grateful for each and every one of its generous supporters, but is particularly appreciative of those of You who practice Leadership Giving and the example you set in the community. If you haven't already made your pledge to the 2017 campaign, we invite you to be a part of this circle of leaders today. Simply fill out this pledge card and submit it to the United Way office (P.O. Box 1350, Cumming, GA 30028).
