Ben Landers, Past President and CEO, United Way of Greater Knoxville
"We believe a premiere nonprofit focused on helping regional organizations enhances the delivery of their programs and will improve overall community conditions. There is no doubt in my mind this concept works. Our area is ready for it and deserving of a top-notch effort. When the concept of the Alliance for Better Nonprofits was being considered, the United Way of Greater Knoxville, at my request and others, jumped at the chance to participate in the groundwork to create it."
