Leading the way for a more equitable community

Leaders United was formed from United Way’s affinity groups that began more than 20 years ago by passionate leaders who supported our work to reduce poverty and create impact in central Ohio.

Join this powerful network of leaders who represent a wide variety of age groups, backgrounds, workplaces and interests, and who are all committed to making central Ohio an even better place to live, work and play. Leaders United members want to play an important role in setting and carrying out agendas for change in central Ohio. Members invest their time and treasure to help create a more equitable community.
