Speaker: Sara Newell, Sr. Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Central Alabama
United Way has a rich history in helping neighborhoods and communities in Central Alabama. The United Way of Central Alabama, Inc. (formerly The Birmingham Community Chest) was organized in 1923 with 31 agencies and a goal of $450,000. Today, with an annual fundraising goal of more than $38 million, United Way improves lives by launching and supporting the Bold Goals Coalition of Central Alabama—a large scale community-based initiative to align efforts aimed addressing disparities in education, health and financial stability (www.boldgoals.org). Throughout its history, the United Way has not changed its basic purpose-to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another and to improve their communities.
Bio: Sara Newell is the Sr. Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Central Alabama. In that capacity, she is responsible for annual fund allocations and evaluation of programmatic results for more than 80 United Way partner organizations across Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Walker Counties. Since 2013, she has also been responsible for the bulk of United Way’s community planning and organizing efforts through the Bold Goals Coalition. Newell holds a Masters of Public Administration from UAB and a Bachelor of Arts from Samford University. Prior to assuming her current role at United Way, she worked for five years as a fundraiser for United Cerebral Palsy in Los Angeles and New York City. She is married to Van Newell, an Instructor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Alabama and is mother to Gideon, age 7 and Isaac, age 2.
