Local United Way President To Lead United Way in Raleigh

November 28, 2001, Dayton, OH - Craig Chancellor, President of the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area for eight years has been named the new President of the Triangle United Way in Raleigh, North Carolina. Chancellor will oversee the total operation that serves Durham, Wake and Orange Counties.

When the annual campaign wraps up in mid December, Triangle United Way expects to raise $26 million. The funds will support 82 agencies and more than 200 health and human service programs in the three county area.

Chancellor has been with the United Way system since 1975 working at United Way of America and for the local organizations in Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Prior to coming to Dayton in 1993, Chancellor was President of the United Way of Saginaw County in Michigan for five years.

Chancellor is Treasurer and an Executive Committee member of the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Better Business Bureau and the League of Women Voters. He was Honorary Co-Chair of the Peace Bridge events in 2000 and 2001. Chancellor is also a member of United Way of America's National Professional Council.

Accomplishments under Chancellor's leadership of the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area include: the adoption of outcome-based funding that resulted in increased capacity to measure program impact; a comprehensive organizational study to improve business processes and efficiencies that reduced the operating budget by 10%; and more than doubling leadership giving in the annual campaign from $2,100,000 to $5,100,000.

Steve Beinlich, Managing Partner of Ernst and Young and 1st Vice Chair of the Board of the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area will lead a search committee for Chancellor's replacement. Chancellor will assume his duties in North Carolina on January 15, 2002. He and his wife Terri currently reside in Yellow Springs. They have four grown children.
