Leaders Society

United is the best way to help.

Members of Leaders Society are part of a unique circle of individuals (single or a combined gift with a partner/spouse) whose generosity reflects their extraordinary dedication to helping all people across the Cincinnati region thrive.


When you give at the Leaders Society level with an annual gift of $1,000 or more to United Way
of Greater Cincinnati
, you are joining more than 5,000 community members committed to improving our
community and helping all families build sustainable financial foundations.


Donor Networks
Your impact in action.


As part of a Donor Network, you join enthusiastic supporters devoted to creating systemic change in Greater Cincinnati. Making a long-term impact is difficult to do alone. We believe leading change is more
effective, and more fun, when we do it together.

Your Donor Network Experience

Each network is a community of individuals united to create sustainable change for families and individuals across our 10-county region.  Your network experience includes:

  • Events focused on the impact of your gift
  • Stories and updates about people whose lives have been changed because of you
  • Virtual meet-n-greets to build relationships with fellow network members
  • Roundup of curated news and events so you can plan your experience

Join a Donor Network

Joining a donor network is simple! After making the appropriate donation, you can email us at leaders@uwgc.org and we will help you get setup to join one or more networks based on your personal interests. 

We will send confirmation of your selection along with more information to welcome you to your new network(s). Also, you will be given the opportunity to learn more about the impact of your giving and how to take part in network activities.
