Everyone who gives at any level is helping to free the future for kids in our region.

That makes each of you a hero in our book. 

Through their extraordinary generosity, our Loyal Contributors, Leadership Givers, Women United and members of the Tocqueville and Rose Societies earn special places of honor.

Loyal Contributors 

Have you been giving to United Way—any United Way—for 10 years or more? Let us know! We want to thank you and show our appreciation for your consistent support. Your generosity has helped thousands of families in our region. In addition, you’ll receive invitations to special Loyal Contributor events and activities where you can meet other people like you who have been giving back to our community.

Leadership Givers

Leadership Givers are United Way of the Columbia-Willamette supporters who exemplify commitment and caring with annual investment of $1,000 or more. If you're a Leadership Giver, you’re setting an example for your neighbors. That’s why we want to recognize you for your generosity.

Reaching the $1,000 level of giving may be easier than you think. It takes just $20 a week to join the Leadership Circle if you use payroll deduction. Many companies will match your donation. Spouses or domestic partners may also combine their gift to be recognized at higher Leadership Circle levels.

Tocqueville Society

United Way of the Columbia-Willamette’s Tocqueville Society is a group of elite donors who are at the forefront of creating positive change and tackling our community’s toughest issues. Membership is open to individuals and couples who contribute $10,000 or more annually.

The national Tocqueville Society was created by United Way of America in 1984, designed to deepen individuals’ understanding of, commitment to, and support of the work of United Way. Four years later, in 1988, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette founded our local Tocqueville Society.
