Men’s Leadership Society

United Way’s Men’s Leadership Society was founded in 2013. Men from across our 16-county region make annual gifts of $1,000 or more in an effort to help people in our community live their best possible lives. The Society offers a unique way to value these contributions while familiarizing individuals with other key leaders in the region, preparing them for their role in serving our community.
