Board of Directors

United Way of Long Island's Board of Directors is fiscally responsible for the organization budget, active in planning and support of fund raising activities and legally responsible for establishing and implementing policies and programs.

Community leaders on our Board usually meet six times annually. Potential Board members are nominated and reviewed by the Board Development Committee.
