Leaders’ Circle

Since the year 2000 when United Way of Eastern Maine started the Leaders’ Circle of  giving to the Annual Campaign, these generous and loyal donors have sustained our efforts to create lasting change in the five counties we serve. It should be noted that these Leaders’ Circle donors give in so many ways over and above their financial support—they serve on boards at our fine health care facilities, arts organizations, institutions of higher-learning, and social service agencies. They volunteer their time at our public schools, shelters, and soup kitchens.

The spirit embodied by our Leaders’ Circle donors inspires all of us to do just a little more. So to this very special group of United Way supporters we say thank you. We are grateful and honored to have your support.
