A Loaned Executive (LE) is a volunteer who is “loaned” to United Way on a part-time or full-time basis during the campaign. The LEs maximize staff and volunteer efforts while maintaining low fundraising costs during the campaign. In return, United Way provides a unique professional program that develops sales and executive leadership skills and an understanding of community organization.
As an individual you can help us by volunteering to be a Loaned Executive. With more people retiring early, the Loaned Executive Program is an excellent way to stay involved in your community.
As a business, you can help us by “loaning” one of your staff on a full or part time basis. Talk to us about the details. If you can’t “loan” a person to us, perhaps you would be able to sponsor a volunteer who will work as a loaned executive.
Being a loaned executive to United Way is an eye-opening experience. Although I knew that health and human service needs existed in Greater Nashua, I didn’t really understand the extent of situation until I visited some of the local agencies as a United Way Loaned Executive. I learned how United Way-funded programs at local agencies help address local needs. The Loaned Executive position for me is a very rewarding one because I know that the funds I help raise – especially those directed to the Community Impact Fund — go where the needs are greatest in our area.
Serving as a Loaned Executive also helps me hone my public speaking skills and my knowledge and understanding of the community. Most importantly, however, I know that my work is helping United Way improve people’s lives.
