Leadership Giving

Every movement needs leaders. As we begin our 20-year commitment to the Square One Project, we seek benefactors who will set the tone for others and establish the significance of the need in our community. When you invest $1,000 or more in the work of United Way California Capital Region, you lead by example and ensure that together we have the momentum to reach our goals. Your commitment and generosity serve as motivation and inspiration for donors, volunteers and advocates across our region.


Step-up Program

The United Way California Capital Region Step-Up Program is a giving plan that provides you the opportunity to achieve your desired annual gift while enjoying the membership level benefits immediately. In this program, you will incrementally increase your gift value over the course of three years, reaching your goal investment by the third year.
