Dear [Name of Leadership Donor],
[COMPANY] has a proud history of supporting our community through United
Way, and this year’s campaign is no different.
Los Angeles County is facing many dangerous and unsustainable trends. High
levels of poverty, increasing high school drop out rates, and a growing unskilled
workforce top the list of our community’s greatest challenges. That’s why your
support is more critical than ever before.
This year, I would like to invite you to become a member of United Way
Leadership Circles (through an annual gift of $1,000 or more to the Creating
Pathways Out of Poverty Plan). For a little as $20 per week, you can help to
meet basic needs like housing and health care for the homeless, give youth the
support they need to graduate from high school ready for college and the
workforce and help the working poor with opportunities to become financially
As a Leadership donor, you will also receive special benefits such as invitations
to United Way functions, a membership discount card, United Way’s Connections
newsletter, and recognition in The Los Angeles Times (full-page ad).
Join me by making a Leadership pledge to United Way and help create the kind
of community we all want to see.
