Job Title:  Sandoval County Coordinator

Reports to:  Director of Community Investments 

Salary Classification: Level II, non-exempt; benefits eligible.                     




Headquartered in Albuquerque, United Way of Central New Mexico (UWCNM) serves the people of five counties:  Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance, Valencia and Santa Fe.  Its mission is to bring people and resources together to measurably improve lives and strengthen our communities. 


UWCNM brings together donors, businesses, nonprofits, government, and others to create better solutions to our community’s challenges.  Our programs and donor dollars ensure that individuals and families in Central New Mexico have the opportunity to achieve potential through education, that they are healthy and safe, are financially stable and live life with dignity. 



Since UWCNM represents Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance, Valencia and Santa Fe counties, the organization must understand all five counties’ changing needs, developments, prospects, and issues.
