Board of Directors

United Way of Ontario County’s Board of Directors is a distinguished group of community leaders whose strategic decision-making and guidance steer the organization. The commitment of United Way board members is not only evident in the time they contribute as volunteers, but by the fact that each board member donates generously to support our work.
