Volunteer Leadership

United Way of the Coastal Empire is a volunteer-driven organization that involves community leaders and professionals in every aspect of our activities. We give a special thanks to the following volunteer groups for their ongoing support and commitment:

Community Investments Vision Council

The Community Investments Vision Council serves to ensure that United Way’s investments of donor contributions, staff time and other resources deliver positive community impact. The Vision Council provides oversight, guidance and support for The Community Fund investment process and initiatives. It guides the direction of United Way’s overall community impact agenda by helping to maintain focus on current areas of need in the community, identifying gaps in services within the community, advocating for policy and systems-change, where applicable, and actively promoting The Community Fund among the donor community as the best vehicle for supporting human services.  View Community Investments Vision Council
