Started 40 years ago from a vision for developing our community’s caretakers, Lead DSM is a thriving, independent nonprofit benefiting from, and dependent upon, the generosity of our donors and members.
The 1982 Society is for generous Lead DSM champions, like you, who support our vision of a thriving community for all. By becoming a donor member of the 1982 Society with a personal, tax-deductible gift of significance of $75 or more, you are helping leaders activate their courageous voices and orchestrate transformational change in Greater Des Moines. As a thank you for your support, you will receive early announcements, special opportunities, discounts, and more.
Your donation helps:
Sponsor scholarships for two Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute participants, ensuring finances are never a barrier to community leadership development.
Sponsor five Youth Leadership Initiative students to help them lead in their schools and communities through this tuition-free program.
Create the financial foundation for Lead DSM's new leadership series, launching in 2023, that will make leadership development accessible to more people in our community.
