Nominate a Loaned Executive

Our United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region Loaned Executive program is designed to be a rewarding opportunity for your organization, your employees and United Way! During the fall campaign, September through December, United Way calls on its corporate partners to lend their best and brightest employees. After training, Loaned Executives (LE’s) assist United Way staff in sharing the impact of our work. In the midst of COVID-19 we are working on making all necessary adjustments to the program, including modified responsibilities and virtual training, to keep everyone safe. Loaned Executives help keep United Way campaign costs low by maximizing staff and volunteer efforts. In return, United Way provides professional development that focuses directly on executive skill building.

"The United Way Loaned Executive Program was a really unique and rewarding experience. Serving as a loaned executive through my employer was a great opportunity to address professional and leadership skills, but I also found an immense amount of personal growth in the process. I would encourage anyone looking to engaging with others while serving the needs of the community in which they live in a meaningful and hands on way to consider this opportunity."
