Leadership Giving

United Way's Leadership Giving Program

Leadership Donors unite from all ages and walks of life to lead change in the areas of poverty, kids and communities with gifts between $1,200 and $9,999 annually. United Way brings together all areas of community to address social issues at the roots and develop long term strategies to solve them.

It’s not a donation. It’s an investment.

Double Your Impact

This year, first time Leadership Donors have the opportunity to DOUBLE THEIR IMPACT. Thanks to Philanthropists W. “Bill” Andrew, Michael & Donna Kanovsky, Bill & Sharon Siebens, and an anonymous donor who have made exceptional contributions, gifts from first time Leadership Donors will be matched dollar for dollar – doubling the impact to support Calgarians in need. Please see here for more details.
