A message from the CEO


It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you as the new President & CEO of the Cape and Islands United Way. I am privileged to take on this position with the region’s leading social impact organization.


Some of you may know my background, as I have spent 25+ years in media and marketing on Cape – as a publisher with GateHouse Media, marketing and community relations vice president at Bank of Cape Cod, and most recently as vice president of Lighthouse Media Solutions. I have volunteered over the years with many local non-profits, including past board member and chair of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and former board member and chair of the YMCA of Cape Cod.


My wife, Kelly, and I, along with our three sons, live in Hyannis. My new contact information is: mskala@uwcapecod.org; 508-775-4746, ext. 303; cell phone, 781-254-8024.





The work of our United Way has lasting impact across the Cape, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Together, with our donors, volunteers and partners, the Cape and Islands United Way supports and fosters local communities where children succeed, families are financially stable, residents are healthy and there is safe and affordable housing. This is a tall order – one I am confident we can continue to achieve together, helping to create impactful social change in our communities.


This is a tall order – one I am confident we can continue to achieve together, helping to create impactful social change in our communities.

I am so pleased to be a part of the strong and dynamic team at the Cape and Islands United Way, where our staff and board of directors work tirelessly and collaboratively for the benefit of all who work and live here and call Cape Cod home, whether seasonally or full-time.


I look forward to collaborating with each of you as we continue the good work of the Cape and Islands United Way. Please feel free to reach out anytime with questions about our organization, volunteering, donating, or requesting support.


Sincerely,

Mark Skala
