Chambers said, “Getting at what is causing the

changed most about our organization over the years and
I’m very proud of that. We’ve always done good work
and good things in the community. I think how we’ve
changed over the years is just being more precise about
changing the community and changing what the needs
are in the community. Being very more focused on that.
And, identifying what’s really wrong and what the big-
gest needs are in the community and addressing those.”
Chambers explained about United Way, “it is a
worldwide organization, but every United Way is fund-
ed every year. United Way is an individual nonprofit
run by volunteers in the community and it’s based on
the needs of that community. We do pay dues to use the
(national) organization and its logo and they support us
in making sure that we are run in the right way.”
The roots of UWCC go back almost 40 years to Cal-
vert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant’s then operator Balti-
more Gas & Electric Company, which identified a need
and started assisting their employees in raising money
for organizations like boy and girl scouts and Meals on
Wheels. That first year $5,000 was raised.
The organization incorporated as a non-profit in
1990 has always had a small staff. When Chambers
started there was a full-time director and herself work-
ing part time as an administrative assistant. Today it’s

tor of Community Impact Heather Cease and Director
of Operations Christine Michelsen
Chambers has been with UWCC for 27 years. She
had worked for Prince George’s County government
developing a drug program and also in therapeutic
recreation.
Why did she choose UWCC? She quickly responded,
“Serving people? That’s been my passion. My whole
life is giving back to the people in the community. I
love working with the agencies. I love working with the
community and giving back. And that’s what United
Way is all about, it’s the people and helping in multi-
tudes of different ways because there are so many dif-
ferent agencies that we work with on a regular basis. So,
it’s all about the agencies and helping people. “
In addition to the switch to needs-based funding,
Chambers said there’s been an emphasis on “being ac-
countable to not only the agencies, being accountable
to the donors. I think that’s why people want to give to
United Ways, because they know that their dollars are
being well spent. The donors know that when they give
