Leadership Giving Levels & Tax Benefits

What makes a Leader?

A Leader is bold, strategic and passionate.
Leaders step up to make a difference.
Our city needs you to lead change.

As a Leadership Donor with United Way, you are creating an impact because:

  1. Your investment is strategically directed where it is needed most in our city.
  2. Our programs, initiatives and collaboratives are rigorously evaluated to ensure your gift has the greatest impact possible.
  3. You are supporting your fellow Calgarians to thrive.

“Investing in United Way is important, because you truly are investing in your community. And you’re investing in somebody else’s future. You never know, you might be investing in your own.”

– Mark Roblin, United Way Leadership Donor
