United Way fights for everyone to succeed,

Join the Fight

“We believe that nonprofit organizations can better achieve their missions by drawing on the skills, talents, and perspectives of a broader and more diverse range of leaders, and that the diversity of viewpoints that comes from different life experiences and cultural backgrounds strengthens board deliberations and decision-making.” - BoardSource

Aligning with this belief, United Way of San Diego County is committed to recruiting and cultivating a group of demonstrated leaders who are diverse in their ethnicity, professional backgrounds, subject matter expertise, and cause area interests.

We are excited to announce that the application for our Board Service Certification March 2021 cohort is now open!

PLEASE NOTE: This cohort is sponsored by the Clare Rose Foundation and will be focused on arts, culture, and creative youth development organizations. Participants will be encouraged to connect with nonprofits in these fields upon completion of the course.
