Who Are United Way Leaders?

Leaders are everyday people who recognize the growing issues facing our community including access to mental health supports, racism, domestic violence, social isolation, school readiness, homelessness, and poverty.  These caring and generous individuals believe and trust that United Way can help solve these issues and more through their connection to the community, government, and other partnerships.

Local love and change happen through active leadership. United Way Leaders show their local love by making a gift of $1,200 or more each year. United Way Leaders know that lasting and positive change is possible, and our community is strongest and healthiest when everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Their acts of local love change lives.

“This past year has been challenging but it has also highlighted the incredible generosity of our community members and organizations. It is because of this generosity that United Way can continue to engage and mobilize community funding, strengthen the network of services and the capacity of local non-profits, and support our city’s most vulnerable citizens.

We are proud to continually witness this community’s local love, care, and support for those who need it most. Every individual in our community deserves the opportunity to thrive – this is why we support United Way.”

– Hanif Hemani & Lindsay Arnott
