Donating, especially through United Way, targets multiple communities, multiple areas where the opportunity for change is greatest. And I think United Way does a good job in really looking at and finding those communities in which our dollars can make a bigger impact.
I’m part of Emerging Leaders because I believe young philanthropic leaders can be the next generation of change-makers. They don’t need to have a lot of financial resources. They have the skills and the expertise. We just need them to show up, educate themselves and mobilize.
The collective brilliance and star-power of this diverse and talented group of women who engage and impact our community is incomparable.
Being part of the Leadership Society provides the opportunity for me to help make a difference in North Texas. The needs around education, income and health continue to be great, and supporting United Way is one way I can do my part to help build a better community and world.
