New Leadership Donors

If you are making a first-time donation of $1,200 or more to Northumberland United Way, the Leadership Challenge will match your gift, dollar for dollar. When you donate $1,200, United Way receives $2,400.

Renewing Leadership Donors

If you increase your leadership gift to Northumberland United Way by more than 10%, the Leadership Challenge will match the increase in your donation.

The Sandra MacCoubrey Leadership Challenge is founded and supported by two very generous donors.

I’m happy to support Northumberland United Way with this Leadership Challenge.
I know that my investment stays local and helps people in our community. A matching gift is an inspiring opportunity and continues the philanthropic support of my late husband Bob.
