The Board of Directors of the United Fund of Talbot County (UFTC) has announced that Buck Duncan, President and CEO of The Talbot Bank, having chaired a successful campaign in 2011-12, will continue in his role as the chairman of the upcoming campaign that kicks off in September.
The United Fund of Talbot County is the only local charity that since 1955 has enriched the lives of Talbot County residents through philanthropy and volunteerism. “Our mission is to raise funds to meet the underfunded human services needs in our community,” noted Ann Jacobs, Executive Director. Other than one paid employee, all United Fund efforts in raising these funds are provided by citizens volunteering their time.
Mr. Duncan has been one of those active volunteers in the United Fund’s annual campaigns for decades. No stranger to community involvement, he has served on the boards of The Country School, CASA of Talbot County, and as a past president of the Rotary Club of Easton. “I am delighted to continue in the capacity of Campaign Chairman for the United Fund 2012-13 campaign,” said Duncan. “It is our goal to help our participating agencies deliver essential programs and services, assisting people here in our community with medical needs, childcare, crisis situations, character development, youth mentoring, and so much more.”
