Leadership Givers are a key leg of the UNM United Way Campaign. Anyone giving a gift of $500 or greater, which equals about $21 per paycheck for bi-weekly employees, is considered a Leadership Giver. You may already be giving at this level to a charitable organization, and if so—by routing your allocation through the UNM United Way Campaign, you gain all the benefits of leadership giving and your designated charitable organization still gets 100 percent of your donation.

In addition to helping our community, Leadership Givers enjoy many personal benefits throughout the year including: admission to special events (Isotopes, Balloon Fiesta, and Explora), invitations to professional speaker series, community agency visits and the opportunity to network with others who share the same desire for change.

During UNM's United Way Campaign, the newly formed Hispano Philanthropic Society along with the Young Leaders Society and Women in Philanthropy will be hosting informational luncheons.  Anyone who contributed to the United Way Campaign last year will receive an invitation to learn more about Leadership Giving.
