What is the Summit Society?
United Way of Northern Arizona's Summit Society is comprised of active community investors who give $500 or more annually. The strength of the Summit Society lies in each member's belief that Northern Arizona community is worthy of significant personal investment. Their generosity reflects a strong commitment to the mission of United Way of Northern Arizona, "Improving lives by mobilizing communities to create lasting changes in community conditions." The Summit Society has seen steady growth in membership since it was founded in 1992.
Why is it important?
Behind every United Way contribution is a very personal and very powerful commitment to addressing human needs and creating long-term positive changes in our community. Summit Society Members set a standard of charitable giving in our community, and motivate, by example, those who have the potential to increase their level of commitment.
In addition to the personal satisfaction of making a significant and lasting impact on the Flagstaff community, other benefits of the Summit Society include:
- Your name listed in an annual Summit Society Publication (with your permission)
- Recognition of your generosity from professional colleagues, company management, neighbors, friends and family
- An invitation for you and your guest to a complimentary Summit Society Reception
- Invitations to attend other United Way of Northern Arizona events throughout the year
I give at a Summit Society level because as an NAU employee I get a lot of opportunities that others in the community might not get. This way I am easily able to give back, help the most people, and get recognition from the community all for only about $20 a pay period. -Bryan Loveless (UWNA Summit Society member since 2001)
