Leadership Giving

United Way Leaders of the Way

Leadership donors have the power to change lives. They inspire others to give. With a donation of $1,200 or more, Leadership level donors are ready to drive change, willing to set a powerful example and become part of the solution to our community’s complex social issues. Our Leaders are passionate about leaving their mark  by creating lasting change.

Leadership Honour Roll

Leadership Challenge Grant

United Way KFL&A is excited to announce the Leadership Challenge Grant will continue this year. Thanks to a generous donation from a local couple who wish to remain anonymous, Leadership donors can once again increase the impact of their gift.

New Leadership Donors – double the impact. 

By becoming a new Leadership donor, you increase the impact of your gift.

  • Your first-time donation of $1,200 or more to the United Way will be matched up to a maximum amount.
  • Increase your gift to $1,200 this year and the Leadership Challenge Grant will match your $1,200 donation
Women United Leadership Challenge Grant – triple the impact

United Way KFL&A is delighted to announce that a special Women United Challenge Grant will be offered during the 2021 campaign, in addition to the ongoing Leadership Challenge Grant. Thanks to a generous donation from Jessica Bayne Hogan, women who are Leadership donors can triple the impact of their gift. 

The new Challenge Grant was announced by Women United co-chair Jane Lapointe at the first Women United event of 2021 held at Lake Ontario Park on Sept. 20.

Under the existing Leadership Challenge Grant, supporters who increase their campaign contribution to $1,200 or make a new $1,200 gift will see their donation matched. With the addition of the Women United grant, women donors would see their donation matched by both grants – tripling their gift to United Way KFL&A.

Renewing Leadership Donors.

If you are already a Leader of the Way and, this year, you add at least 10% to your gift, the Leadership Challenge Grant will provide a match up to a maximum amount.

“We have always donated to the United Way KFL&A because we know that the funds are used right here in our community. During the pandemic, this commitment to the community has been especially important and United Way continues to be an effective leader in addressing the immediate local needs and in helping those that need it most. Our United Way needs the support of our community. Together we can help tackle the increased suffering caused by the pandemic by increasing our support.”

–Jim and Julie Parker, 2021 Leadership Challenge Grant Donors
