Bridges Society

United Way of the Capital Region’s Bridges Society connects the next generation of diverse leaders through giving and volunteering. Membership is open to those who make a minimum gift of $500 to United Way.

Community Leadership

  • Bridges Breakfasts: Network with local leaders and learn about the importance of giving back to our community.
  • Bridges Society and Tocqueville Society Joint Event: An opportunity to network with members of our Tocqueville Society, United Way’s premier leadership giving group.


  • Literacy for Life: Read with kids from Downey and Ben Franklin elementary schools during our Barnes & Noble field trips, sponsored by Enterprise Rent-A-Car. You’ll also complete a scavenger hunt and help students select a book to take home.
  • Youth Day of Caring: Volunteer alongside hundreds of local high school students to work on volunteer projects in our community.


  • Annual Campaign: In 2013, 565 Bridges Society members raised $732,403 to benefit our community through United Way.
