Become a UWTV Loaned Executive!

Each fall, when large numbers of area companies hold their workplace giving campaigns, a group of Loaned Executives works with United Way to raise our visibility and reach our fundraising goal. Concentrated into just four months, it's hard work, but also a tremendous opportunity to get acquainted with local issues and those working on them. It's also a chance to network in the business community, and make contacts that can later benefit the Loaned Executive's company.
Companies typically choose rising stars for their Loaned Execs, or alternatively seasoned leaders who can add particular value thanks to deep experience. Sometimes companies who can't spare someone will instead sponsor United Way to hire someone in the company's name. Either way, it makes a deep impact on United Way's ability to reach out and have a successful campaign.
Do you want the future leaders of your organization to be: Successful project managers?  Results-driven with a sales orientation?  Customer-focused with outstanding service delivery?  Well-connected to other businesses in the community?
The Loaned Executive Program will train employees in:
  • Public spreaking
  • Setting and reaching goals
  • Project management
  • Sales and new business development
  • Group facilitation
  • Networking with local businesses
  • Responding to objections
  • Working with diverse populations
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Team building
  • Problem solving
Employees will go through an intensive training. They will then work on-site at United Way of Treasure Valley for a four-month period and work as fundraisers and community spokespersons for our annual campaign. At the end of the campaign, employees return to their companies with new and enhanced skills.
