A volunteer Board of Directors exercises total decision making and policy setting authority over the United Way of St. Joseph County. These volunteers come from all walks of life throughout St. Joseph County and are accountable to the people of this community.
When people or firms contribute to the United Way campaign, their funds come under the stewardship of these volunteers who work diligently to keep necessary costs to a minimum. These hard-working people are invaluable to our community, both for their enthusiasm in raising money and in assuring its distribution to those most in need.
