Every United Way operates on its own in an independent capacity and is incorporated and governed by a dedicated group of local volunteers. Collaboration is essential for the improvement of our communities.
United Way of Whatcom County is able to successfully address community issues by drawing on a variety of leadership capabilities and diverse perspectives.
Our leadership team consists of the following entities:
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is composed of volunteer corporate and community leaders in Whatcom County.
Fund Distribution Committee
After carefully reviewing proposals from our partner agencies, the Fund Distribution
Committee allocates our Community Impact Fund to ensure local needs are met.
