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. In the spirit of the great American whose life inspired the naming of our city and county—the John Quincy Adams Leadership Association was established to recognize outstanding contributions to United Way.

2019 Annual Campaign Giving-Society Leaders

  • Live United Award - Quincy Public Schools

    • Our LIVE UNITED Award - given each year to a company or organization that demonstrates what it means to LIVE UNITED - was given to Quincy Public Schools for their continued dedication to United Way and our mission.
  • Small Business of the Year Award - The McClean Family of Restaurants

    • Another group of individuals that showcased in 2019 just what we can accomplish when we all work together and give back what we can to our community, is the recipient of this year’s Small Business Hero of the Year - the McClean Family - for their continued involvement in our weekly United Way Wednesday’s promotion. 

United Way measures successful workplace campaigns and honors the companies and foundations that invest in our community.
