Meet Our Board

United Way’s Board of Directors is a distinguished group of leaders in the Portage County whose strategic decision-making and guidance steer the organization. We recruit people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done, which is reflected in the make-up of our board.

The commitment of United Way board members is evident in their donation of time and financial resources to support our work.
