Board Of Trustees

United Way of Northern New Jersey is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees comprised of leaders from a variety of industries in our region and beyond. We engage the Board in the work of governance, strategy, and advocacy. Each member provides an opportunity to be more inclusive of diversity and differing perspectives within our organization and our communities.

If you have an interest in joining our Board, please email Kiran Handa Guadioso or call 973.993.1160, x104.

ALICE    is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, and represents the growing number of families who are unable to afford the basics of housing, food, child care, health care, technology, and transportation. These workers often struggle to keep their own households from financial ruin, while keeping our local economies running.
