Leadership Giving

United Way's Stevens Society recognizes people who lead the way in advancing the common good in our community by giving at least $500 each year. Leadership gifts from Stevens Society members account for approximately one-third of the total dollars raised each year during the community campaign. Please join this caring group of generous individuals who lead by example. Your contribution will help create opportunities for a better life for others in Portage County.

Leadership givers are recognized with an individual plaque and year plate and listed in United Way publications (unless anonymous). Gifts may be combined with your spouse.
