Top 3 Reasons Why We Love Our Loaned Executives

The United Way of South Texas Loaned Executive (LE) Program engages local professionals in its annual campaign to help raise funds for 21 non-profit agencies and hundreds of health and human service programs. We are grateful for the supportive companies who loan us one of their management level employees who are committed to "giving back" to their community. They are the heart of United Way. Here are the top three reasons why we love them:

1. Revitalizing Force: Many of our supportive companies provide United Way with a Loaned Executive annually. The neat thing about this partnership is that the Loaned Executive is not always the same person every year. So, we have the unique opportunity to enlighten many passionate professionals over the years with the mission, vision and core values of United Way.

2. Extension of United Way Staff: Loaned Executives dedicate over 60 volunteer hours to United Way. They help our staff of seven employees by giving presentations and visiting with companies to inform employees about the services and programs that are offered by United Way and its partner agencies. Loaned Executives have been and continue to be a crucial part of our annual campaign.

3. New Opportunities: Loaned Executives help United Way research new opportunities for giving. These new opportunities, or new workplace campaigns, contribute to United Way's vitality - especially when some businesses leave the region and can no longer support our local office.
