EMERGING LEADERS SOCIETY

As an emerging leader, I feel it is my responsibility to support the United Way Community Impact Fund because I have seen first-hand what the United Way programs do for people in our community. United Way’s success is defined by the research and evaluation that is being done to ensure that these programs are successful.

I am confident that my money is making the biggest impact."

Chris Phelps, Wegmans Food Markets
The Emerging Leaders Society is made up of hundreds of Rochester’s most inspiring, proactive emerging leaders who are dedicated to making a positive local impact with their investments. EL is a group of individuals 40 years and under who connect with other local leaders and make an extraordinary commitment to serve our community.
