Volunteer Leadership

The board of trustees is ultimately accountable for the United Way of the Flint Hills’ performance, reputation, and stature in the community.  Through excellence in organizational leadership and governance, United Way is a mission-driven organization, where staff and volunteers are passionate, focused, and aligned to achieve goals. The volunteer board of trustees is effective in setting direction for the organization, ensuring necessary resources are available, and providing oversight of programs, finances, legal compliance, and values.
