Loaned Executives

Loaned Executives (LEs) are an integral part of United Way of Greater Cleveland's annual campaign. They help manage all aspects of workplace campaigns, while building and sustaining relationships in nearly 1,600 companies and organizations that participate each year. Our thanks to those companies and organizations that provided staff or sponsorship dollars for the 2014 LE Program.

If your organization is interested in loaning or sponsoring a Loaned Executive, please contact Jim Feth at 216-436-2191 or
