Our Leadership

Together, Creating New Possibilities for the I.E.

Board of Directors

Inland Empire United Way is governed by a dedicated group of local volunteers. Board members reside and/or work within the Inland Empire so they can represent the community and help direct United Way’s efforts to address the specific needs of our region.

The volunteer board of directors is responsible for all local policies, resource development, finances, program/initiative selections and other major decisions.
