Jill Michal

Jill is President and CEO of United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, the organization that is your local partner for driving the kind of measurable, lasting impact that none of us can achieve alone. Under Jill’s leadership, United Way has shifted from an organization that simply makes grants to one that truly makes change. Jill has led United Way in tackling challenging, long-term issues that break the cycle of poverty. To accomplish this task, she works to inspire stakeholders to check their logos and egos at the door to bring people together who are willing to define themselves more by the problem they’re trying to solve than the organization or the constituency they represent. She understands that that’s what drives real, lasting change.
