This year United Way of Saginaw County received a "challenge" from our friends at The Dow Chemical Company. If we could get enough community leaders to step up and give a donation at one of our leadership levels or if they were already giving at a leadership level to increase their gift to the next level, then The Dow Chemical Company would provide a match of $25,000.
Not only did our community step up to this challenge, they exceeded our expectations. In the end, more than 160 "new leaders" pledged or increased their gift so we would receive the additional $25,000 match. Their total amount pledged was well over $145,000.
Thank you to all of our community leaders who stepped up so we could receive this match and create an even greater impact in the community.
