Loaned Executives are vital to the success of United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley’s annual campaign. Loaned Executives (LEs) serve as account managers and assist United Way in implementing workplace campaigns. LEs work directly with the professional United Way staff and corporate Employee Campaign Leaders (ECL) to plan and manage the workplace campaign efforts throughout Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties. LEs become a key member of the United Way team, and help keep our overhead costs down so more resources can go toward assisting those in need.
The United Way provides training and professional opportunities that enhance sales, communication, and leadership skills. In addition LEs gain a deeper understanding of local community needs, and the targeted work of the United Way and its partner agencies. We are currently seeking Loaned Executives who can commit to our Fall 2015 (Jun.-Nov.) and/or Spring 2016 (Jan.-May) LE Program.
