40 under 40


To encourage more young professionals to support the work of the United Way of Greater Waterbury MacDermid Performance Solutions has put a generous match incentive on the table called "40 Under Forty"!

We are looking to motivate at least 40 professionals under forty to either increase their pledge to United Way, or for those who did not make a pledge last year to make one this campaign.

MacDermid Performance Solutions will match that increase in donation, or in the case of a new or lapsed donor - match the entire gift for this campaign. You will be recognized for the total amount.

By participating in the 40 Under Forty, you agree to pledge the full amount the next year.

For example, if you were a new donor and pledged $500, your gift would be matched $500, and you would be recognized at the $1,000 or Leavenworth leadership level. The following campaign, you agree to pledge the full $1,000.

If you gave $500 last year, but pledge $750 this year, $250 would be matched and you would be recognized at the $1,000 level, agreeing the pledge the full $1,000 the following year.

These amounts are only examples, any amount below or above qualifies for the match.

You have until December 31st, 2017 to fulfill your pledge. (Yes, you read correctly, 2017!)

We hope you will consider this generous match opportunity to maximize your giving & help us make history!

And if you are not a member of the United Way Emerging Leaders, we also encourage you to join us by clicking on the link at the sidebar of this page.
