United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties (UWRCC) announces the 2022-2023 Catalyst Program participants presented by Integrity Eyecare. Program participants were selected based on their interest in community involvement and will begin the nine-month program on Thursday, September 15th. 

The Catalyst program’s goal is to train volunteers to serve in nonprofit leadership roles, such as nonprofit boards, in Rutherford and Cannon counties. Participants in the program gather monthly to learn about governance, financial accountability, diversity, equity and inclusion, and more topics as they relate to nonprofit leadership. The program also offers opportunities to connect directly with local non-profits through agency tours and projects.


Ella Weaver, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Programs at your local United Way, is excited about the new cohort and shared some of the benefits participants can look forward to. “Catalyst participants will meet and learn about many nonprofit organizations in our community. Participants will leave the program having identified ways they can make an impact on issues they care about through advocacy, giving, and volunteerism.”
