Following a national search, Tiffani Mensch has taken the helm as CEO of United Way of Collier and the Keys. Mrs. Mensch comes to UWCK from Knoxville, Tennessee, where she has a deep, trusted history of non-profit strategy, operations, finance, resource development, marketing, and communications. Previously, she served as Chief Philanthropy and Marketing Officer for United Way of Greater Knoxville, Executive Director of the Alliance for Better Nonprofits, Development Manager for the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, and Coordinator of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations for the University of Tennessee’s College of Education, Health, and Human Services. Mrs. Mensch led the planning and development of a $25 million state grant to coordinate care for families with economic, social, and developmental vulnerabilities and elevate them beyond their circumstances to self sufficiency.
On April 1, 2020, United Way of the Florida Keys merged with United Way of Collier County, bringing us together as United Way of Collier and the Keys. This unification will allow the organization to increase operational efficiency, ultimately resulting in more resources available to improve the lives of struggling residents.
