Ambassador Program

Each year, community-minded employers lend key personnel to United Way of West Florida to serve as Ambassadors. By volunteering their time each month, these individuals help raise funds to meet critical needs in our community. Each Ambassador supports between five and eight companies by planning and implementing successful fundraising campaigns. To do this, Ambassadors receive training and several opportunities to learn more about the United Way-funded programs addressing the gaps in education, health, and financial stability.
