Lead Donors

Y. Ping Sun

Lead donors to the Rice United Way campaign invest in the improvement of our community with contributions of $1,000 or more (around $40 per paycheck when split over an entire fiscal year by automatic payroll deductions). Last year, this elite group of Rice leaders contributed nearly 60 percent of our campus campaign total, and helped Rice earn a spot in the United Way’s top-tier “Chairman’s Division” as one of the 50 most generous institutional donors in all of Greater Houston.

Lead donors are eligible for membership in any of several United Way giving societies, each of which has its own specific member benefits (please see below).

Thank you for considering supporting our campaign with a leadership level donation.
