Leadership Givers

At the core of every worthwhile endeavor are those whose caring and personal leadership set the course for others.

In our community, thousands of generous and caring individuals partner with United Way of Adams County to change lives and build community. Leadership givers combine public purpose with private giving to make strategic investments in the whole range of health and human service issues in our community. Because United Way of Adams County only funds programs with proven methods that match our community's needs, United Way supporters can be assured that their investments are really making a difference.
Our leadership givers are individuals and couples who contribute $500 or more annually to our community.

2021 Annual Campaign Giving Society Leaders

  • LIVE UNITED Award: 'Alana's Angels' fundraising committee

    • Our 2021 #LiveUnited Award recipients are the ladies from 'Alana's Angels', a small but mighty group of devoted friends that helped plan and execute United Way of Adams County's biggest fundraisers ever. The group consists of: Caroline Campbell, Elisha Freiburg, Alana Flynn, Erin Knapheide, and Allie McCleery. Their advocacy of the United Way Mission is a clear example of what is possible when we all Live United. 
  • Small Business Hero - Corporate Giving: Central State Bank

    • Central State Bank is the 2021 Small Business Hero for Corporate Giving for having the largest percentage increase of a corporate gift by a small business. CSB Vice President Tim Sedovic was more than eager to get involved with the UWAC campaign this year. Through his leadership they pledged a generous amount corporately in 2021, and agreed to impact future campaigns with continued support from employees.

  • Small Business Hero - Employee-Giving: Schmiedeskamp, Robertson, Neu, and Mitchell law office
