What is the Loaned Executive Program?
The Loaned Executive Program is a community-wide leadership opportunity allowing select individuals to work as a part of United Way of East Central Iowa’s campaign team. Loaned Executives are the foundation of the annual campaign as each is responsible for an assigned portfolio of accounts and helps United Way raise over $10.5 million. Sponsor companies continue to pay their employee’s salary and benefits which allows United Way to minimize operating costs while maximizing the impact in the community.
“Working as a United Way Loaned Executive opened my eyes about the needs in our community and gave me the opportunity to help out. I was also able to create new and lasting friendships through this experience.” – Sue Travis, Quaker Oats
