Leave a Legacy that Builds a Stronger Future for Lebanon County
In the early 1930s, community chests, the forerunners of today’s United Way, adopted the red feather as a symbol of service. For many years, the annual campaign here in Lebanon County was referred to as the “red feather campaign.” Each donor was handed a red feather pin to proudly wear as a symbol of their commitment to their community. In honor of our past leaders, United Way of Lebanon County established the Red Feather Society. With our roots in service, we recognize the impact that planned giving has afforded our community while we continue to focus on building an even stronger future for us all.
Through planned and estate giving to United Way, you are leaving a legacy of generosity that ensures a stronger, caring community for our children, grandchildren, and generations beyond. In joining this esteemed, philanthropic group, your lasting commitment will touch thousands of lives by empowering adults, families and children alike to rise from poverty, break multi-generational barriers, and reach their potential.
