Leadership Giving

Our affinity groups are made up of our most generous supporters and are an integral part of our efforts to solve the root causes of our community’s problems. United Way of Marion County's affinity groups provide a means for passionate, determined and action-oriented leaders in our community to use their collective strength and financial power to make a difference. Although our groups are diverse, they are truly connected by a singular mission or passion.
