Is your company interested in giving back to the community in an easy and fun way? Participating in a United Way workplace campaign gives your organization and your employees the opportunity to learn about our community’s needs and give them a convenient opportunity to get involved. You can join with other businesses across Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties to help improve lives in our community.

Each year, local companies participate in United Way California Capital Region’s Loaned Executive Program by providing qualified employees to United Way to assist in our annual campaign. Loaned Executives (LE’s) serve as an extension of the United Way Resource Development department and work full time or part time in United Way’s office from late July to early November.
The Loaned Executive experience provides:
- Growth opportunities through leadership and team building experiences
- Extensive development of public speaking, sales & marketing, and relationship management skills
- Immersion in a fast paced Resource Development department during the height of our fundraising campaign
- Participation in a 17 week program set to include a series of training and workshops with some of the region’s top training professionals
- Site visits to regional and funded partner nonprofit agencies to gain insight into community needs
Who would be a good candidate for the Loaned Executive Program?
Participating in the United Way Loaned Executive program has been a wonderful experience, it has opened my eyes to how much work is actually required to build, strengthen, and maintain relationships with companies throughout the United Way campaign. I have enjoyed working with an awesome mentor, Russ Gostage, and all the other amazing staff at United Way! Working to create a campaign with a employee campaign coordinator to collecting pledge forms and donations, has been exciting and informative.
Campaign Coordinators are ambassadors, storytellers and help communicate United Way’s purpose and work in our community. Being an Employee Campaign Coordinator is a big job, and we know you will find the experience to be very rewarding.
