Board of Directors and Committees
Greetings from the Board!
The Board of Directors strives to provide good governance and accountable use of the donations that we receive from the community. We are proud that 90% of all donations and 100% of the Workplace Campaign donations we raise go directly to Yukon charitable organizations.
It is important to us that our Board consists of a broad cross section of the community at large and that the membership is community minded, energetic and knowledgeable.
Currently, the Board has eight members. Members are elected by the general membership at the Annual General Meeting early in each new year.
The general membership is comprised of all United Way donors from previous years. That means….probably you! If you are interested in becoming part of our Board of Directors, please let us know.
Community Engagement and Investment Committee
The Community Engagement and Investment Committee is responsible for funding innovative projects that help address the underlying causes of social issues. The committee reviews applications for project/program funding from a wide range of Yukon NGOs and determines how funding is allocated.
Members act as the primary United Way contact for the funded organizations. They monitor each project’s progress, find out about any issues that may affect delivery, and help ensure accurate reporting.
The work of the committee takes place mostly from mid-January to mid-March, when funding applications are received and assessed. New members are welcome throughout the year. Contact the CEIC Chair, Doug Hitch, for more information if you’re interested (email). View the job description here.
