Individuals who contribute $1,000-$9,999 to the United Way each year qualify as members of the Leadership Circle, while those who donate at least $10,000 a year qualify for the Tocqueville Society. Through this new Step-Up Challenge Grant, an individual pledges to become a member of the Leadership Circle or Tocqueville Society over a three-year period. Donors choose their increments with only two requirements: In year one, he or she agrees to contribute at least 50% of the amount necessary to meet the level of choice, while in year three, the individual agrees to contribute the entire amount necessary for membership. In years one and two, the Step-Up Challenge Grant pays the difference needed to meet the donor’s level of choice. Both the Leadership Circle and Tocqueville Society have membership rewards that include opportunities to connect with other donors, receive public recognition and obtain regular updates.Harleysville Insurance is a leading super-regional provider of insurance products and services for small and mid-sized businesses, as well as for individuals, and ranks among the top 60 U.S. property/casualty insurance groups based on net written premiums.
