Leadership Giving

The 2014 Beatties Basics Leadership Challenge

This year, when you donate to United Way for the first time at the leadership level ($1,000 or more) or increase your current leadership donation by more than 10%, The Beatties Basics Leadership Challenge will provide up to $50,000 in matching funds to United Way. Thanks to the generosity and commitment of Beatties Basics we can make lasting change by supporting essential programs.

How It Works:

New Leadership Donors:
If you are making a first-time donation of $1,000 or more to United Way, The Beatties Basics Leadership Challenge will match your gift, dollar for dollar. So, when you donate $1,000, United Way receives $2,000.

Renewing Leadership Donors:
If you are increasing the amount of your leadership gift by more than 10%, The Beatties Basics Leadership Challenge will match the increase in your donation.

For more information, please contact Eric Lamothe at United Way: elamothe@stcatharines.unitedway.ca or (905) 688-5050 ext. 107.

2009: George Darte Funeral Chapel Inc.
2008: Gales Gas Bars Limited

We salute the leadership of these special individuals who made these gifts possible.
