Red Feather Society

The Red Feather Society recognizes donors who give an annual gift of $50,000+ to United Way of Greater Cleveland. In 1945, the red feather was chosen as the national symbol for Community Chests, a forerunner of the modern United Way. Red feather pins were awarded to donors and worn proudly as a sign of a commitment to their community. The Red Feather Society was named in honor of our humble beginning and to recognize our most dedicated supporters.

“We give to United Way of Greater Cleveland because we trust them to do the research for us to ensure that our dollars go to the organizations that will make the greatest impact for those living in poverty in Cleveland.”
