Your contribution is valued.
Every cent helps our mission to advance the common good and create opportunities for people to have a better life.
We don’t raise money for the sake of raising money. We don’t solicit in a vacuum. We are not a simple “middle man.” The United Way–using our 150 years of experience, best practices that have been honed to a diamond edge and an unrivaled network of impact organizations–will maximize your gift and ensure that your dollar hits harder and spreads further.
Sponsor an event. Donate a percentage of profits. Organize a special fundraiser/collection drive.When you support United Way, in addition to providing much-needed resources where they can have the most meaningful impact in our community, your business also benefits from philanthropy through improved employee morale, increased employee retention, enhanced reputation and image in the community, beneficial business-to-business relationships with nonprofits and increased customer loyalty.
Great Bay Leadership Society
Founded in 1992, the Great Bay Leadership Society was created to recognize individuals who have given in excess of $1,000 to the United Way of the Greater Seacoast. Last year, over 300 families and individuals were members of the Great Bay Leadership Society.
In 1996, United Way of the Greater Seacoast’s Tocqueville Society was formally created by a small group of committed supporters. Since then, membership has grown to more than 30 individuals and families who contribute in excess of $10,000 annually to the United Way. Donations from these generous benefactors represent nearly 10% of all the money we raise annually.
Currently there are over 398 local Tocqueville Societies in communities across the United States. For information about Society benefits, events, and more, visit Tocqueville Society.
For more information on planned giving, please contact Janet Guen at 603.373.9111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remembering United Way of the Greater Seacoast in your will is one of the easiest ways to make a lasting expression of your charitable concern. Bequests may be in the form of a stated dollar amount, property, a percentage or the residual of an estate. The process is simple. A Letter of Intent (PDF document) is all that is needed.
United Way of the Greater Seacoast’s commitment to our community extends well beyond the needs of this year, this decade, or this generation. That’s the reason we created an endowment fund - The Legacy Fund.
This special fund will support our work to build a better community for all of us who live or work in the Greater Seacoast region into the future. Separate from our annual campaign, your gift to The Legacy Fund will be invested – with only a portion of the interest income being spent – ensuring the gift will grow in perpetuity.
Your generosity can touch the lives of your children’s children and their friends and neighbors living here in our community. The process is simple. A Letter of Intent (PDF) is all that you need.
