Bridges Society

United Way of the Capital Region’s Bridges Society connects the next generation of diverse leaders through giving and volunteering. Great things happen when we LIVE UNITED!

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.


  • Exclusive Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteer with other members on projects that make a difference in the areas of health, education, income and basic needs.

In 2014, members read with kids from Downey and Ben Franklin elementary schools during our Barnes & Noble field trips and volunteered alongside hundreds of local high school students for Youth Day of Caring. 


  • Annual Campaign: In 2014, more than 600 Bridges Society members raised over $800,000 to benefit our community through United Way.
