Linda and Mike Fiterman have been involved with Greater Twin Cities United Way for several decades. Mike was one of the longest-standing board members, serving for 13 consecutive years, and Linda was a member of United Way’s Leadership Council during its development. Mike also served as Campaign Chair in 2006.
In addition to their volunteer involvement with United Way, Linda and Mike’s commitment to the community extends to the Mike and Linda Fiterman Family Foundation and to their company, Liberty Diversified International (LDI) – one of Greater Twin Cities United Way’s longest-standing partners.
When LDI celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2018, the Fitermans recognized the milestone by embarking on a year-long “gratitude tour.” This tour is just one of many ways Mike and Linda inspire and motivate others to pay it forward, creating a legacy of gratitude.
For all they have done for our community, Linda and Mike were recently recognized with the 2019 Tocqueville Society Civic Leadership Award.
“Beyond the philanthropic contributions to the community, Linda and Mike have also given generously of their time and talent. From their board and committee service, to the countless acts of generosity and volunteerism, the Fitermans are tremendous community champions who lead with a compassion to do what is right,” said Jim Campbell, former Wells Fargo Minnesota executive and former chairman of the Greater Twin Cities United Way board.
“Gratefulness stems right here. It stems from what this United Way does for new immigrants, for people starting out and for people with young families just trying to make a better world for them,” said Mike.
Now it’s our turn to show gratitude. Thank you, Linda and Mike Fiterman, for helping our community thrive!
