Loaned Executive Leadership Program
Join the Loaned Executive Leadership Program
2014 Brochure (with timeline of commitment)
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 $2.2 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 Funds Distribution 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 (LEs are assigned no more than 10 workplaces). 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.
Beginning this year, Loaned Executives are being asked to participate in the Funds Distribution Process. Funds Distribution is United Way’s method of investing dollars raised during the campaign into local nonprofit programming through annual grants. This will be the first activity for the 2014 class of LE’s. United Way believes it is vital for our LE’s to intimately understand how campaign dollars are being used before asking the community to support the Workplace Campaign.
Loaned Executives will also participate in monthly leadership seminars with focused training on the local nonprofit sector and community needs. These seminars also feature presentations from community leaders on topics such as: Confidence, Calmness and Competency – the 3 C’s of Leadership; Consistent and Credible Leaderships; Strengthening Relationships; and Dealing with Difficult People (to name a few).

-Gary Sammons, Gulf Power, Current Board Chair and former LE
Being a part of the Loaned Executive program has made such a significant impact on both my personal and professional life. While helping make a difference in our community and serving those in need, I have learned a great deal about myself. I've made some amazing new friends and gained a greater appreciation for the United Way, their mision and this wonderful community I call home.
