We know that when you make a donation to the United Way, you want every dollar to go directly toward programs that help children, families and individuals in Marshall County.  To help make that happen, the Cornerstone Partners programs was introduced during the 2011 Campaign.

The Cornerstone Partners program allows large and small businesses, individuals, and foundation the opportunity to direct their annual gift toward underwriting administrative expenses of the United Way of Marshall County.  All Cornerstone Partners at the following levels will receive special recognition accordingly:

  Corporate  Individual
Keystone of the Community  $10,000 $7,500
Pillar of the Community $7,500 $5,000
Foundation of the Community $5,000 $2,500
Builder of the Community $2,500 $1,000

Cornerstone Partners receive the following recognition:

  • Listing in UWMC printed material and on UWMC website
  • Recognition certificate of plaque for your display as a Cornerstone Partner
  • Cornerstone Partner Banner displayed at all UWMC Special Events
  • Company's Website linked to UWMC website
  • Company's Logo appearing on UWMC website
  • Listing on UWMC stationary and campaign materials

Because of the generosity of our current Cornerstone Partners, more of every contribution from individual donors will go directly to programs and services.

Thank You 2016 Campaign Cornerstone Partners!
