Executive Director Position Open

The United Way of Eagle River Valley seeks a dynamic Executive Director to work with an all-volunteer board to carry out our mission of connecting people and resources to address the needs of our community. Successful fulfillment of the position will require a collaborative leadership style, excellent communication skills and Microsoft office literacy.

Job duties include maintaining a working knowledge and awareness of relevant 501c charities in the Eagle River Valley, maintaining the organization’s filing system and databases, coordinating Board meetings, representing United Way in community activities, website oversight and cultivating current and potential donors, corporations and foundations. The average work week will be 10 hours although hours are flexible and work may be conducted from home. Compensation is a flat monthly rate of $1000.

If you want to work in a dynamic environment for an organization that serves and helps the community, please submit your resume and cover letter to John Genova, President, United Way of Eagle River Valley at jvgenova@sbcglobal.net.

How can you ensure that your donated dollars to our community are well spent? How do you know where the greatest need is? Our all-volunteer board of directors will do the "heavy-lifting" to find the best home for your kind gifts through a rigorous grant review process and diligent results accounting. Instead of duplicating services, we are supporting the work done by agencies already established.

United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

United Way of Eagle River Valley brings this vision and mission to our small community by providing valuable grant resources to over 25 hard-working non-profit organizations in Eagle County.

UWERV grant checks are being distributed for 2014-2015 and CASA is one of the recipients

These grants that come with no additional marketing or administrative burdens can be funneled directly into programs that deliver real results. With just one part-time staff member, an all-volunteer board and some in-kind services donated by local businesses, we are able to keep our administrative costs very low, therefore granting as much raised as possible.

In addition, many of these agencies will apply for federal or other national grants and having the United Way on their roster of grantors is beneficial to their request. Based on the current needs of Eagle County, we fund agencies in three categories:

  • Helping Families Meet Basic Needs
  • Improving Access to Health Care
  • Youth & Education Programs

Your one single donation can help over 30 local agencies serve tens of thousands!

Please consider the United Way of Eagle River Valley for your tax deductible contribution this year. Your generous donation is a powerful way to support those who support our community.
