Community Leadership

There are many activities in which United Way staff members are involved even though direct funding is not provided. These initiatives invite United Way staff members to the table because they know that the expertise provided will benefit the work of the collaboration. These activities are often coordinating bodies, problem solving groups, information sharing or mobilizing efforts. Usually, these efforts are focused on looking for solutions, increasing the capacity of the non-profit sector or increasing awareness of issues.

United Way staff provide expertise, coordination and information-sharing
on the following community planning committees and initiatives:
