Recognition of Your Generosity in UH's Giving Circles

Thank you for your giving! We enjoy recognizing each of you at the following levels:

 

Helpers' Circle ($1,000+)

This group symbolizes the leadership and vision of the 12 women who established United Helpers in 1898.
Each woman gave the equivalent of $2,817 (in today's dollars) to establish the Society of the United Helpers.
Today, Helpers' Circle donors have the vision to be the ultimate help to people with health care needs in our area.

 

Society Founders ($500-$999)

Donors at this giving level are unique and essential partners in the continuous, attentive care that United Helpers provides.

 

Benefactors ($250—$499)

Donors at this giving level are special for their understanding of the good that their gifts do for people who rely on UH.

 

Leaders ($100—$249)

The Leaders giving level honors those donors who lead by example for the sake of UH clients and residents.
Each of the 12 women who helped to create United Helpers gave $100 to that effort.
(Today, each of those gifts would be $2,817!)

 

Friends ($1—$99)

Friends are donors who, throughout our 120 years of service, have been on the side of UH residents and clients.
