​Feather Society

Where your impact takes flight.

Our Feather Society dates back to the 1930s when generous people like you contributed to the Community Chest, the forerunner of today’s United Way. Today, we carry on the tradition to recognize your generous investment in our mission to lead, unite and inspire our community to improve lives.

An annual donation of $500 or more enrolls you into our Feather Society. Members receive:

  • Exclusive invites to learn more about key issues they are impacted by investing in United Way.
    • Feather Society Impact Series: Join us for an exclusive insider’s look at critical programming happening because of your partnership with United Way. Engage with experts. Meet other Donors. Discuss key issues. Help bring our community together. Events occur at least twice a year.
  • Honorary lapel pin based on giving level.
    • Red Feather: $500 to $999
    • Silver Feather: $1,000 to $4,999
    • Gold Feather: $5,000 to $9,999​
