“You should give all your life – you don’t quit! I know that United Way will give the money to help those in need because it’s a bona fide organization. That’s the joy of giving to United Way – I know it’s going to the right places.”
~ Bob Corbett, United Way donor for 60 years
“Giving is like the golf shot that keeps you coming back. It’s hard to describe but easy to feel. I get such a good feeling from doing something good.”
~ Rob Smith, United Way donor for 27 years
Diamond Donors know better than anyone the joy and good feelings that come from giving, especially for a quarter century or more. United Way of Greater Kansas City is proud to recognize the more than 1,200 generous individuals in our community who have made that commitment and who have helped us build a stronger community for decades. Last year, these loyal supporters contributed more than $1.6 million to United Way.
We appreciate every gift made to United Way, but we appreciate most of all those dedicated investors who have made such an invaluable, ongoing investment in helping families throughout our region. Diamond Donor membership is open to everyone who has donated to United Way for 25 years or more, in Kansas City or in any other community.
Our Diamond Donors receive special communications about United Way’s work throughout the year and are invited to our special events, including our Spirit of Caring campaign kickoff luncheon and our annual Victory Celebration.
