Leaders in Giving

At the core of every worthwhile endeavor are leaders whose generosity and dedication set the course for others. In Greater Stark County, thousands of individuals are partnering with United Way to change lives and build stronger, healthier communities.

Giving together

Leaders in Giving support life-changing programs for children and their parents who are experiencing the burdens of poverty. Hundreds of leaders donate $1,000 or more annually to United Way to build stronger, healthier communities and by pooling their resources with others, make a difference that none of us could achieve alone.
