Leadership Council

The USO Leadership Council is a giving society that recognizes individuals and organizations who provide transformational support to the USO’s mission. By contributing $10,000 or more, each member’s generosity significantly expands the USO’s ability to strengthen and empower the military community. The generous support of our council members enables the USO to keep our service members connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.

For more than 77 years, the USO has been easing moments of separation, connecting military men and women to what matters most to them throughout their time of service and beyond–no matter where they serve. The Leadership Council members are unique in that each council member’s involvement in providing support can be crafted to their preference based on giving level.

We know that meaningful expressions of love and support have a powerful impact on those who serve. Joining the USO Leadership Council gives a donor the opportunity to give their thanks to our brave service members in unique ways. In recognition of their support, the USO Leadership Council members receives national recognition and access to exclusive events, programs and entertainment. This council of unwavering supporters have the opportunity to truly see the impact of their giving.

Together with you, we can continue to provide the support that strengthens and comforts service members and ensures that they never feel forgotten.
