Leadership Council

The USO Leadership Council recognizes individuals and family foundations who annually give $10,000 or more. Leadership level support plays a vital role in delivering the USO mission by providing the fiscal flexibility to execute ongoing programming as well as rapidly deploy resources as emergency response operations or national disasters occur.

For more than 80 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. By joining the Leadership Council, you can take great pride in knowing your generosity enables the USO to remain agile in responding to the ever-evolving needs of military life and therefore will have a meaningful impact on the lives of our courageous service members and their families. Additionally, you will enjoy other exclusive benefits, such as access to USO special events and programs and national recognition for your leadership gift.

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