Pillars Club for Leadership Givers

Members of our Pillars Club are individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to people in need in greater McHenry County through our local United Way. They are people like you – people who care about others in such a way that it compels them to go beyond what is expected of them. The United Way staff and volunteers would like to express their deepest appreciation to each of our Pillars Club members for their determination to create a better future for local people in need.


Not only does it feel terrific to give at a leadership level, but Pillars Club for Leadership Givers members also receive the following benefits:

  • Recognition as a United Way Pillars Leadership Giver on our website (unless you choose to have your gift remain anonymous)
  • An invitation to our new United Way Pillars Club Volunteer Project
  • Special invitations to exclusive events
  • Being the first to hear how our grant money will be allocated to our partner agencies
  • Early registration to participate in our Allocation Process in the spring
  • A personal investment report which illustrates how your gift impacts our community
  • Complimentary tickets to our Annual Campaign Kickoff
  • Networking opportunities with United Way leaders and other leadership donors

For questions or more information, please contact Executive Director Carole Peters at cpeters@uwmchenry.org or (815) 363-1377.
