Drew Langloh has dedicated his career to the mission of serving the underserved through the United Way movement. This Arlington, Virginia native believes United Way is a ministry of service to others—its work is not only to help those in need but to help volunteers and donors fulfill their service needs by helping others.
With his degree in Social Work from the University of North Carolina, at Greensboro, Drew joined the United Way movement in Greensboro, NC. In 1991, he moved to Birmingham as VP Resource Development for United Way of Central Alabama and completed his MBA at Samford University. He left Birmingham for Baltimore in 1999 to become the Senior Vice President, Resource Development and Marketing for United Way of Central Maryland and in 2004, became President and Chief Professional Officer, United Way of Delaware.
He returned to Birmingham in 2008 as President, with a vision to elevate UWCA to a top model for making lasting changes to complex problems. He feels today’s problems have become so complex and deeply rooted that a different approach is needed. To solve today’s problems, he believes it will take non profit agencies, municipalities, corporations, foundations, academic and faith communities working together with a common focus.
He is a servant leader--involved in many other community organizations including: Board of Directors of the Birmingham Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Leadership Birmingham, Leadership Alabama, Kiwanis Club of Birmingham, Children’s Hospital Committee for the Future, The Junior League Advisory Board and United Way’s Worldwide Professional Council.
United Way of Central Alabama is among the top twenty United Ways in the country in total revenue. It has just successfully completed another fundraising campaign, its largest ever, in the toughest year ever, to raise $37,270,908 million dollars for the programs and agencies it funds. Throughout his career, Langloh has helped raise over $500 million for charity.
Drew and his wife, Anne Lynn, live in Birmingham with their three children. He and his family are active members of the Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham.
