Chuck Taylor has been selected to serve as the interim executive director for United Way of Davie County.

Taylor will serve as the organization’s leader and will work to establish a vision for community impact that is achieved through outreach efforts.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to continue serving my community through this role with the United Way,” said Taylor. “I believe that during this specific time (COVID-19 pandemic), the United Way is poised to focus even more on the great work our agencies do on a daily basis, specifically how they are cultivating hope for the citizens of Davie County.”

Serving as the owner of Sage Garden Care Center, Taylor works with businesses, governments, non-profits, and community leaders across the Triad of North Carolina and has done work as far away as New York City and Tel-Aviv, Israel. He is the board chair for the Davie County Chamber of Commerce, a board member for the Davidson County Community College Foundation, and has served on the United Way of Davie County’s Community Investment Council for three years.

Taylor’s primary responsibilities will be to coordinate and advance UWDC’s annual workplace giving campaign, and help tell the story of the United Way of Davie County and how it impacts residents.

“COVID-19 is opening the doors for a new focus for the organization. We have amazing people doing some truly gifted work to help others. I want my friends and neighbors to know how these agencies are serving and how they need our continued support. We must be the advocates that bring their message to the community, and as we share their stories, we will pool the funds of our generous donors to maximize the impact of these agencies as they fulfill their missions.”

Taylor studied Biblical Studies at Southern Christian University. He also has a minor in psychology and is a board verified life coach. Taylor lives in Mocksville with his wife LeeAnn and their five children.
