The Mission and Opportunity
Founded in Denver in 1887, United Way is the world’s largest privately funded non-profit, and the largest non-government funder of human services. United Way of Northern California (UWNC) is one of 1,200 local United Ways in the United States. Each United Way is governed by a local volunteer board, and operates autonomously.
United Way’s mission is to “fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community.” We do that by working in close collaboration with non-profit partners, government agencies and the business community to advocate for, support and deliver programs and resources that help improve lives. UWNC gives grants to agencies whose work aligns with out mission; runs programs promoting financial stability for families, and operates 2-1-1, the human services helpline, in Shasta and Tehama counties. UWNC is a proud supporter of Help Central Inc., which operates 2-1-1 in Butte and Glenn Counties.
UWNC is based in Redding and operates in a nine-county area, including Butte and Glenn counties. It has long been a desire of UWNC to deepen our presence in Butte and Glenn. The recent, tragic Camp Fire has made that goal an imperative. This new position stands as an opportunity to extend the agency’s work at a time when those resources are critically needed.
The successful candidate will be offered a two-year employment contract, subject to renewal at the end of that period dependent on job performance and the strategic needs of the agency.
The Regional Manager, Butte and Glenn Counties will represent the interests of UWNC in those counties. An early and crucial role will be to coordinate disaster relief, recovery and preparation activities on behalf of United Way, collaborating closely with all appropriate partners and agencies. The Regional Manager will establish relationships with non-profits, government agencies and key business partners in Butte and Glenn counties. Based on input from those parties and general community input and knowledge, the Regional Manager will develop, recommend and help implement strategies for community impact programming, and open the door for new revenue opportunities. The Regional Manager will advise the President & CEO and other key managers of needs and opportunities in his/her territory, and work collaboratively within the agency to execute against those needs.
