Grow Leaders


Each year, local companies are asked to select one or more of their employees to participate in United Way’s Loaned Executive Program. Loaned Executives (LEs) are a critically important resource in United Way’s annual fund-raising campaign for three major reasons:

  1. They enable us to keep overhead costs low, so that more funds can go directly into the community.
  2. They help United Way raise a tremendous amount of money. Every year, they work with more than 600 businesses and organizations in Cumberland County to raise millions of dollars.
  3. When you combine the power, energy, and talent of Loaned Executives, volunteer leaders, and our staff, the results are unlimited.
