When you give a Leadership gift you are leaving your mark on Leeds & Grenville by creating lasting change. You are also setting an example to motivate others to give a similar levels. You join a select group of donors who are committed to building strong, healthy communities.

Leadership Challenge Grant

United Way Leeds & Grenville is excited to announce a Leadership Challenge Grant for the 2020 Campaign. Thanks to a generous donation, Leadership donors can increase the impact of their gift. For more information on this new Leadership Challenge Grant, please see this information sheet.

New Leadership Donors - Double your impact

  • Increase your gift to $1,200 this year and the Leadership Challenge Grant will match your $1,200 donation

Renewing Leadership Donors

If you are already a Leader ($1,200+) with United Way Leeds & Grenville, and, this year, you add at least 10% to your gift, the Leadership Challenge Grant will provide a match up to a maximum amount.

Leadership Giving and the Tax Benefits

Tax benefits make it easier to be generous to your community. Many people are surprised to learn Leadership Giving is more attainable than they had thought. In fact, federal and provincial tax credits cut the cost of your donation nearly in half. When a gift is divided over a number of pay periods, many find Leadership Giving is not out of reach. Gift of securities are even more tax beneficial.

Canada Revenue Agency has developed a charitable donation tax credit calculator.  Use this tool to estimate how much the tax credit will reduce the cost of your donation to United Way.
