Leaders Circle

Established in 1987, Heart of Maine United Ways Leaders’ Circle is a network of like-minded individuals just like you who contribute at least $1,000 annually. They are committed to strengthening our community and share a vision for advancing the common good in our region. Their generosity has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the well-being of every person living in each of the six counties we serve.  Our Leaders’ Circle does so much to ensure that change in our area is lasting, and that United Way and our partner agencies can continue to provide compassion, dignity, and hope.

By bringing together people with passion, expertise, and resources, we can take on the complex social issues that directly affect our community’s economic vitality and quality of life. Together, we can create real change and improve people’s lives, now and into the future. 

Together, we can create opportunities for our friends and neighbors who need us most. Join the Leaders’ Circle, as an individual or a combined giver, to make an impact in the areas of our community that mean the most to YOU.
