Everyday Heroes -  Individuals making a gift of at least $1 a day — $365 a year - are recognized in our Everyday Heroes Program. During the workplace campaign, Everyday Heroes are encouraged to proudly wear and display the Everyday Hero button in recognition of their gift and to encourage others to step up their pledge. Be a hero everyday!



United Way of the Lakeshore's Leadership Circle recognizes individuals whose philanthropic contributions exemplify outstanding commitment to improving the quality of life in our community.


Alexis de Tocqueville Society

A special group of individuals have already attested to United Way 's expertise in impacting the community. They have partnered with us by joining the Alexis de Tocqueville Society. With an annual gift of $10,000 or more, Tocqueville members significantly grow United Way 's ability to provide effective health and human service solutions and inspire others into action.

Another option is to join the Fast Track Program, where members pledge to increase their gift over a two to three year period to the Alexis de Tocqueville level, but receive recognition at the higher level beginning the first year of their pledge.

Consider joining United Way of the Lakeshore's Leadership Circle and link with others whose passion and commitment impact the lives of our friends and family.
