United Way Ballarat & The Ballarat Foundation welcomes new CEO

Welcome to our first newsletter which is pretty exciting for us here at United Way Ballarat and The Ballarat foundation as there is lots of good news stories to share.

As for me, not sure if I am still the new kid on the block as its been 4 months already and have met and has had lots of conversations with supporters, partners and community members at large. There is a lot of love, passion and good will towards United Way Ballarat & The Ballarat Foundation. Our programs such as L2P, Volunteering Ballarat and our annual Golf Classic continue to be well received and overwhelmingly endorsed throughout the community.  Special thanks to all who participated in our online survey during the last two months the results which we will use to inform our plans for next year.

Finally, many of you have ties to the organisation in different ways, I am keen to maintain & strengthen these hence I am available to chat, catch up or receive emails or letters from you with your thoughts anytime.

Until then,

Simon Tengende
