Emerging Leader

3 year progression to $1,000

With an annual contribution of $1,000 or more, Lake Superior Leadership Society contributors significantly increase the ability of Head of the Lakes United Way to actively address critical needs in the community of your choice. Your gift is strategically invested in local programs that address the building blocks of a good life including basic needs, supporting children and families, income stability, and emotional opportunities.

Last year, leadership giving continued to be a significant part of United Way’s annual fundraising campaign, representing 33% of the total dollars raised.

Our community’s future rests with leaders like you—people who see the big picture and are willing to share part of themselves with their neighbors. We ask you to accept the challenge, make the commitment, and set a leadership example for others to follow. Thank you for partnering with us!
