Campaign Cabinet

Each year, United Way depends on volunteers within the community to help with our fund raising efforts. The following volunteers are playing a key role in helping create a brighter future for all in St. Lucie County

   
 

Loaned Executives

Loaned Executives are the link between United Way's volunteer campaign leadership and the organizations from which United Way obtains contributions. They function as an extension of United Way staff helping manage workplace campaigns. Loaned Executives are selected by their CEO/immediate supervisors to volunteer time, during the weekday, to directly assist with the annual fundraising campaign. With a rapidly growing need for help and support for the most needy citizens of St. Lucie County, Loaned Executives play a vital role in assisting the United Way to raise the resources needed to achieve positive sustained changes and impact lives in our community.

 

For more information on the Loaned Executive Program, please call (772) 464-5300 or email monte.kosoff@unitedwayslc.org.
