||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 Beattie’s Basics Leadership Challenge will provide up to $50,000 in matching funds to United Way. Thanks to the generosity and commitment of Beattie’s 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or (905) 688-5050 ext. 107.

“We feel giving our time and financial support to United Way is the best way to help our community. When we all contribute, we are able to target issues that affect local children and adults by supporting essential local services that help Niagara residents in their time of need.”
- Cheryl & Brian Banfield, 2014 Leadership Co-Chairs
