2020 Campaign Co-Chairs

United Way of Southeast Alaska is proud to announce a dynamic team who will be leading United Way of Southeast Alaska’s annual giving campaign. Emil Mackey, Insurance Agent and owner of Country Financial and Desi Smith, Senior Account Executive Juneau Radio Center and Untied Way Board Member. Our Campaign Co- Chairs are looking forward to building on past success while aiming to increasing both donors and donations.

United Way of Southeast Alaska’s President/CEO, Wayne Stevens announced, “We really appreciate both Emil and Desi taking on this important challenge. The annual campaign helps to fund United Way’s fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community across Southeast Alaska. Everyone deserves the opportunity to have a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. Both Emil and Desi have been great ambassadors for these causes in the past. We know that they will do an excellent job."

Community contributions are invested carefully and systematically in programs and agencies that work to solve various community problems. This will be very important in the next few years as we are all feeling the affects of COVID- 19. We have a great responsibility to ensure that your contribution is invested in the most effective and impactful way possible.

Statistics show that 1 in 3 people will use a United Way partner agency in their lifetime. Your support ensures that you, your loved ones, neighbors and co-workers will have help when it is needed.

United Way of Southeast Alaska is a volunteer-driven, grass-roots organization that creates lasting change by bringing people and resources together to address community-wide issues. 

UWSEAK focuses on the building blocks of a good life: Education, Income and Health; a quality education that leads to a good job, income that can support a family through retirement and good health. 

UWSEAK is a member of the United Way Worldwide system that includes nearly 1,800 community-based United Way organizations. Each is independent, separately incorporated and governed by local volunteers.
