Becoming a Campaign Liaison
What do you enjoy most about working as a Loaned Executive on the OP campaign?
It is difficult to choose one item – I enjoy the entire process, the interaction with all levels of State and United Way employees, donors, receivers, and non profit organizations, along with mission at hand. This is one of the top experiences of my career so far.
How long have you been involved in or volunteered with the campaign?
A total of about 10 years; continuously for the past six.
What inspires you to give through the campaign?
Ease of donation to the organizations of my choice – I respectfully refer to it as the “One and done contribution process”
What nonprofits do you donate time or funds to, and why?
I donate one-time funds to varying organizations throughout each year in addition to the monthly deductions through the campaign. For the 2017 monthly payroll deduction, I will continue to contribute to Meals on Wheels plus two Veteran related non profit organizations (I can’t remember their names). I also volunteer for the Shriners Hospital of Northern California and Habitat for Humanity. Each one of these organizations helps individuals along with their family member(s) to improve quality of life and future.
