Red Feather Leadership Society


In 1998, several community leaders felt they should take the lead in contributing to the United Way. In this spirit, the Red Feather Society was founded. The contributors of the Red Feather Society are leaders of business, government, and those that are willing to invest back into the commuinty in a very tangible manner by giving at least $1,000 each. 

The first year, there were only 9 members. Fast forward 25 years to 2023 and there are currently 161 members! This leadership category represents 47% of the entire campaign contributions. Click HERE to see a list of all our current Red Feather Society Members. 

Thank you to all our Red Feathers for their continued support!
