The Million Dollar Pledge


The Million Dollar Pledge Team is now accepting New Members!

To learn more please contact Alexya Heelis or Dave Veale.

Join a network of progressive, socially-conscious business leaders and create real impact in our community with the guidance of the United Way.

 This is similar to an investment pool in the private sector. The only difference is that our ROI is measured by impact being made to improve lives of real people in our local community. That’s a Return on Impact we can all get behind.


Ten partners each pledge $10K per year for 10 years for a total million dollar pledge.

 Pledge partners get together, and with the counsel of United Way’s investment advisors, decide how best to invest. Over time, partners monitor and manage their pledge portfolio for the greatest return on community impact.
