United Way Executive to Retire

Print PDF

Message from UWPC Executive Director Beverly Prueter

Thank you!

The last five years have rapidly gone by and I have been blessed to be able to continue my community service work at the United Way of Pinal County.  Serving as Executive Director, I have been able to work  with a talented and community-oriented volunteer board of directors and staff and a tremendously committed group of partner agencies throughout the county.  This job has truly been a gift.     After some 51 years of United Way work, I have decided to retire.    There is much to be done in Pinal County and significant need.  The time is right for new leadership as we prepare to review the results of the Community Needs Assessment Survey and change direction if needed.    I will remain as your director until the new director is in place and will continue to serve the board in other capacities as they wish.
Thank you for your support of United Way of Pinal County and of me.   I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to serve the county.   BJP

Message from UWPC Board President Keith McGlaughlin

The United Way of Pinal County Board of Directors has formed an executive search committee to develop plans for the future leadership and development of the organization over the next few months.   Regular announcements will be made as the committee has information to share and is ready to accept applications for the position, how to submit them, and the outcome.  
I want to express my thanks and that of the board for Beverly’s leadership.   Her strong knowledge of the United Way system has helped us greatly and will be sorely missed. Beverly’s knowledge and dedication to Pinal County United Way has guided this United Way to a 66% increase in campaign donations mostly from new sources during her tenure as Director. We will miss that energy and will have to double our efforts to maintain the direction she has provided.
With change comes challenge and opportunity and our board and staff will be working for a strong future for United Way and its partners.   We appreciate your support.    KMcG

United Way of Pinal County Preparing for county-wide Community Needs Assessment and Updated Community Impact Plan

The United Way of Pinal County’s Board of Directors has authorized a review and update of the 2005 Community Impact Plan.  Pinal County, the size of the state of Connecticut, has diverse regions and issues. One thing for certain is that residents in all parts of the county have experienced tremendous financial impact as they have had to survive the past economic boom and bust cycles.  Human services that have responded to these needs have done so for many years with shrinking funding levels, making it most difficult for them to respond and meet all of the needs.  Gaps sometimes emerge between community needs and services delivered.  The United Way of Pinal County aims to create collective community impact by funding efforts that leverage resources that address gaps in the human services provided in our county.
