"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." -Margaret J. Wheatley

The United Way of the Wabash Valley’s Business Cabinet serves as a community champion of the United Way of the Wabash Valley.  Members of the Cabinet provide the organization with professional expertise; diverse knowledge of the community and the challenges it is facing; connections to resources, colleagues, or peers; or other forms of needed assistance.

The Cabinet is also used as a way to keep the business community informed of the work of the United Way and how it can help their interests.  The Business Cabinet is a sounding board for guidance on proposed board activities and has no governing function within the organization.
