Engaged Leaders United

Update 3/23/23:

After receiving great ideas and input from the planning committee, group members, and others, we will be updating the Emerging Leaders United program name and requirements. Our aim is for the name to more closely align with the group’s interests and for the program to expand in age. Going forward, our group will be called Engaged Leaders. We are also expanding the age limit to 50 years and under (rather than 40 years and under). The donation requirement will remain at a minimum annual gift of $250 or a combined minimum annual gift of $500 with a spouse. We look forward to continuing to build this program and its community engagement opportunities.

We appreciate all of your support and philanthropic involvement as an Engaged Leader!

About the Program

Engaged Leaders United is a program for adults age 50 and under who donate or pledge a minimum annual gift of $250 or a combined minimum annual gift of $500 with their spouse.

Being an Engaged Leader will allow you to discover and expand your philanthropic passions through volunteering, networking and community involvement. 

Anyone who qualifies for the Engaged Leaders United program AND checks the box on their pledge form will be invited to participate in these opportunities.
