Loaned Executive Leadership Program
The Loaned Executive Leadership Program is a highly unique, year-long, volunteering opportunity that brings together a group of local professionals to coordinate United Way’s Annual Workplace Campaign. Ultimately, Loaned Executives are the face of the campaign, which raised over $1.6 million for nonprofit programming last year.
Loaned Executives will develop professional and leadership skills while improving Escambia County by supporting the Workplace Campaign, participating in the Community Investment Process, and attending monthly leadership seminars.
Loaned Executives (LEs) support the planning, organization, implementation, and successful completion of all campaigns within an assigned group of local workplaces that run United Way Workplace Campaigns. As an LE, the objective is to achieve an increase in support and contributions to United Way of Escambia County and to foster a greater understanding of United Way’s efforts in the community within the workplace.
Loaned Executives are asked to participate as a member of the Community Investment Committee. The Community Investment Committee oversees the funds distribution process, United Way’s method of investing dollars raised during the campaign into local nonprofit programming through annual grants. United Way believes it is vital for our LEs to intimately understand how campaign dollars are being used before asking the community to support the Workplace Campaign.
