Sieur du Lhut Leadership Giving Society
The Sieur du Lhut Society is the United Way of Greater Duluth’s leadership giving group. Named after Daniel Greysolon, Sieur du Lhut, a fearless explorer who founded the area that is now the City of Duluth in 1679, this group of committed leaders has a shared vision to actively create hope for the future of our community. They see their contributions as ensuring care and opportunity for those in our community in need of support, today and in the future.
This group has set an impressive record of financial leadership in every campaign for the last ten years. Contributions have increased dramatically, going from $250,103 in the 1991-92 campaign to $502,886 in 2002-03. Each year, leadership givers have acknowledged the challenge, madethe commitment, and set the example for others to follow.
