Jim Micsky is Executive Director of the United Way of Mercer County, a position he has held since 1998. Prior to this appointment, Jim served for ten years as a Community Services Liaison. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Antioch University at the George Meany Center, Maryland.
Jim led the United Way of Mercer County into the Community Impact arena, whereby United Way volunteers began looking to assist with emerging needs while still maintaining core agency program services. In 2004, the Success by 6™ initiative, a six-week summer program for pre-Kindergarten children, was formed. Additionally, the Women’s Leadership Initiative was created to engage women in all facets of United Way.
In 2008, Jim assisted volunteers from Northern Mercer County United Way and United Way of Mercer County to develop a plan of merger between the organizations. Under his guidance, the United Way of Mercer County has strengthened the internal pledge-reporting process, introduced the Program Specific Outcome-Based Funding method, and expanded the member agency affiliation numbers. In 2011, he was appointed to the Board of Directors for United Way of Pennsylvania.
Jim and his wife Cindy reside in the Greenville area and are the parents of three grown children, and are proud grandparents of a granddaughter & grandson, who melts their hearts.
