Lindsey Pontious-Brist

Lindsey cares about the community, and wants to make a difference. So she got involved with United Way. Now part of the United Way NEXT Emerging Leaders executive team, Lindsey is a passionate United Way advocate.

“I love that United Way acts as a nonprofit umbrella,” she says. “They research what the needs are in the community, and then help is extended to not only one, but multiple organizations.”

Lindsey previously served as a United Way Loaned Executive, spreading United Way’s mission while raising donations across the Treasure Valley.

“I LOVED being a Loaned Executive. Not only did it open my eyes to the need in the community, but it also introduced me to several businesses who care about the community just like I do,” she says.

When she’s not volunteering and giving back to the community, Lindsey is a valued employee at KeyBank, which has a history of philanthropy and supporting United Way across the nation. Supporting United Way’s goals in financial stability is a no-brainer for Lindsey. She’s also passionate about health.

“I feel that good health is a strong foundation for a lot of areas in life, yet it is a great area of need in our community,” she says.

Lindsey + United Way = A healthy community.
