Leadership Giving Society

United Way of the Brazos Valley’s Leadership donors strengthen our community through a significant investment of $1,000 or more annually.  Our success depends on our community working together to change lives and create lasting results. Leadership givers form the foundation of that success. Their contribution inspires hope and opportunities to our neighbors and friends in need and solidifies our ability to build a stronger community.  

When you give a leadership gift, you have a significant impact on our ability to advance our Community Bold Goals. Your leadership giving contribution can be combined with a household member, given as a one-time gift, or given through payroll deduction.  To discuss your intended gift, please contact Eleesha Blackwell, Director of Resource Development at 979.696.4483 x118 or eblackwell@uwbv.org

As the local campaign manager, United Way of the Brazos Valley leads the efforts for the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC).  This effort is the only opportunity state employees have to make a contribution to nonprofit organization through payroll deduction.  Donations are designated to the organization of choice by each donor once the organization has successfully been vetted through a review process conducted by the Local Employee Committee.
