All sponsorship proceeds go directly to United Way’s mission to end poverty and expand opportunity for all.

Thanks to a generous donor, this year’s Summit costs are fully covered. That means all sponsorship proceeds will go directly to United Way’s Partnership Grant Program (PGP), which supports 100 poverty-fighting nonprofits throughout our region.

Following the program, United Way will host a private luncheon for the leaders of PGP Community Partners.
