Leadership Giving

Our giving societies are made up of community and business leaders like YOU who are passionate about changing lives and pulling together the expertise and resources that get meaningful results.

As a leadership giver, you are able to engage more deeply in the work and community of Trident United Way supporters, by participating in Donor Networks. You can elect to become a member of multiple Donor Network Groups that are of interest and apply to you.
