Leadership

River Region United Way (RRUW) is a volunteer-led, volunteer-driven organization representing our entire five-county region. From the board of directors to fund-raising volunteers and the thousands of others who lend a hand each year, volunteer leaders ensure River Region United Way continues to make an impact on the issues that matter most.

River Region United Way is composed of many different divisions of volunteers to insure transparent leadership.  While we do have a small operating staff, all policies and procedures are set and approved by our Board of Directors with guidance from our various committees.

The Community Council identifies issues and areas that fit within our RRUW business model - Education, Health, and Income.  This committee also reviews new partner agency applications and their possible admission into River Region United Way if funds are available for new agency admission.

The Budget and Allocations Committee members annually visit each RRUW partner agency to determine compliance and funding levels for campaign dollars.  B&A ensures each partner agency fully complies with the requirements set by United Way Worldwide and the RRUW.

The Communications and Marketing Committee determines how the RRUW should be represented and marketed in our five county service area.

Other committees can be formed as directed by the Board of Directors and convened as needed which would include all Campaign related committees including the Campaign Committee, Campaign Cabinet and Loaned Executives.
