Seeking Board Members

Interested in making a difference in our communities on the South Coast of Oregon?

United Way of Southwestern Oregon (UWSWO) is seeking qualified candidates to fill vacancies on its 24 member volunteer Board of Directors. Directors represent local businesses, employee groups, government agencies, and community members at large.

Directors are elected for a 3-yr term of office and serve on a variety of service related committees. Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at a no-host lunch. Board activities include conducting an annual community impact survey in the fall of each year to determine current community needs and priorities; find agencies meeting those needs; conducting an annual fundraising campaign from September through November; designate grants to agencies after the campaign and special events and community projects such as the Annual Day of Caring in April and the New Coats & Shoes program for needy kids grade K-4.

United Way of Southwestern Oregon is a local 501(c) 3, non-profit charitable organization focused on improving the lives of people living in Coos and Curry Counties. For more information or to apply, contact Marcia Hart, Executive Director at uwswo@frontier.com or call 541-267-5202.
