Governance


United Way of 1000 Lakes’ Board of Directors is a group of community leaders whose strategic decision-making and guidance steer the organization. They help staff carry out our mission and set strategic goals to improve individual lives and make the Itasca Area a better place for us all.

Our Board of Directors oversees the management of United Way of 1000 Lakes. Board members act as stewards for the monies raised in our community, understand United Way’s legal responsibilities, review existing policies and formulate new policies, review and approve the annual budget and audit, and review and approve agency funding decisions.
