Loaned Executives


Enhance proficiency, promote ability,

increase visibility

These are just a few of the benefits employers receive when they loan or sponsor an executive for United Way's Loaned Executive program. Participation gives your company high visibility in a multi-million dollar campaign, provides executive training for employees, and impacts thousands of lives each year in our community.


It's a great opportunity for your business to LIVE UNITED by building a stronger workforce and a stronger community with a single investment. The 13-week program, which runs from August through mid-November, teaches employees how to manage business relationships, develop campaign strategies, conduct workplace presentations and cultivate new accounts. The Loaned Executives work onsite at United Way under the direction of experienced account executives.


Benefits to the Loaned Executive:

  • Build confidence as a public speaker
  • Learn to successfully manage multiple projects and lead a team
  • Improve sales tactics with a results-driven emphasis
  • Develop valuable business contacts within the community 

Benefits to the Community:

  • Extends United Way's effectiveness and helps control overhead costs
  • Develops well-informed, well-trained community leaders of tomorrow
  • Increases campaign dollars
  • Broadens volunteer leadership and community participation in United Way's efforts

Many companies also support the program by donating funds to sponsor a candidate that United Way will recruit and train. Sponsors then have the option of hiring the employee at the end of the program.

To learn more about the Loaned Executive program, please contact Connie Stafford, United Way Resource Development Account Executive, at (407) 835-0900, ext. 248, or e-mail


Here's What Others Say About the Loaned
Executive Program:

Sindy Cassidy

"Loaned Executives help stretch the resources of the Heart of Florida United Way and directly impact the success of the annual campaign. Through their experience, employees develop leadership skills and enrich their pride and commitment to community giving. With such limited organizational resources today, we honor the local businesses who continue to step up to our call."

Sam Pero

"Over the years, Publix has committed dozens of associates to work on-site at United Way during the campaign. Supporting this program sets an example of how business leaders can get involved and become responsible community partner. Associates who've served as Loaned Executives return as more engaged and productive citizens. They also pass on their experience, which inevitably makes a difference in the lives of others."
