United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley's governance structure is focused on leadership, accountability and transparency. Board members must possess the following key attributes: a passion for United Way’s mission and vision, a commitment to invest time as an active member, an ability and desire to take a system-wide perspective and demonstrated commitment to his/her community. Our Board is comprised of diverse volunteers who are representative of donors (large and small), corporations and sponsors, civic leaders and other stakeholders.
