The Leading EDGE Society represents our community leaders’ commitment and vision for our community as a place for families and businesses to thrive for generations to come.
The EDGE fund is a growing endowment whose earnings will offset the operating costs of the United Way and enable 100% of the annual campaign donations to go directly to people in need.
Operating support is the lifeblood of effective charitable organizations. It enables the continuity of community services and funding during the most difficult of economic times.
The United Way is our community’s unparalleled leader for identifying and solving some of our community’s most critical needs through the highly innovative and effective Community Impact Model. The Community Impact Model engages local dedicated community leaders, professional staff and qualified partner charities in actions which create positive outcomes in three critical areas: 1) Education, 2) Financial Stability, and 3) Health.
You may make as many gifts to the EDGE Fund as desired during your lifetime and/or through a planned estate gift. Have confidence your gifts will forever support our community. The community foundation has a long history of successfully managing substantial long-term investments with assurance the funds will be used for the intended purposes.
