Philanthropist Society

Philanthropist Society members work together to shape lasting change in our community.

The Philanthropist Society recognizes donors who give an annual gift of $10,000 – $49,999 annually to United Way of Greater Cleveland. Originating in the 1970s, this group was the founding giving society at United Way of Greater Cleveland and has continued to grow each year. This society was established with the fundamental belief that a better future is possible for all Greater Clevelanders.
