At the heart of every good and significant human effort we find a leadership group that gives the organization strength, character, purpose and longevity that distinguish it from all others. Cowlitz County United Way draws its strength and character from this unique leadership group.
Who are these leaders? They are people like you – people who care about our community, who are positive, who commit to tough goals, and reach them, who have both motivation and the means to provide for their community, and who inspire friends, peers and associates to follow their example.
Leadership Giving represents a new level of community participation, an indication of deeper involvement and a desire to do more. With a contribution of $500 or more, leadership contributors strengthen United Way and significantly increase its ability to provide needed human services.
This community’s future rests with people like you who are willing to share a part of themselves with their neighbors. We ask you to accept the challenge, make a commitment and set a leadership example for others to follow.
- Personal Satisfaction – a good feeling knowing you are perpetuating the ideals upon which United Way was founded and that your contribution helps in the search for positive solutions to community problems.
- Personal Example to Others – through a willingness to influence others by providing leadership for support to the important services provided by the Cowlitz County United Way funded agencies.
