Benefits of Becoming a United Way Champion


As a Champion, a Donor Relations Manager will help you personalize your giving strategy. They’ll provide research and insights to help you meet your philanthropic goals. You can put your gift of $10,000 to work right away—and our philanthropic funds allow you to combine your giving and be recognized for all you do in the community. We make it easy to plan your annual giving and never charge fees for directed giving.


Exclusive educational events allow you to dive deep into the issues you’re passionate about. With a fresh perspective and vital information, you’ll be one step closer to creating change in our community.


We’ll connect you to a variety of ways to volunteer. Whether you prefer to work one-on-one, virtually, or want to enlist your family and friends—we’ll find volunteer opportunities that are tailored to you
