Committed to Helping People

What is the impact of my gift?

A leadership gift demonstrates a personal dedication to creating lasting change. Your gift has a lasting impact in changing a life:

  • A gift of $1,000 could help keep a family from home foreclosure

  • A gift of $1,000 could provide legal assistance to a victim of domestic violence

Reaching the $1,000 level of giving is easier than you think. It takes just $20 a week to become a Leadership Giver. Spouses or domestic partners may also combine their gift to be recognized at higher Leadership Giving levels.
