The Advisory Council ensures that United Way Bay Area has broad representation, insights, and perspectives from our eight-county Greater Bay Area region and includes members from our volunteers, supporters/donors, community partners, labor movement and people with lived experience with United Way programs and services. The Advisory Council, which can have up to 40 members, provides guidance on fundraising and community impact and reports to our Board of Directors. Meetings are held every 4 months, plus one additional meeting, for a total of 4 times per year.
