Mark Stump, United Way of the Plains

Mark Stump — now in his 32nd year with United Way — has served in many different areas of the organization. Beginning as the Director of Finance, he processed all daily financial activities and then generated monthly and year-end financial reports for the Board. From there he supervised the operations of the Harvey County United Way and ran the 13-county Combined Federal Campaign in South Central Kansas. Mark now serves as the Director of Direct Services and coordinates the Volunteer Center, Give Items of Value Program, United Way 211 and Disaster Management. Mark has been actively involved in disaster management for United Way for 27 years, starting on March 14, 1990, the day after the Hesston, KS tornado. His work includes coordination of unaffiliated volunteers, donation management and 211 information and referral. He is an active member of both the regional and State VOAD and has served in many of the leadership offices during the years.  When not responding to a disaster event, you can usually find him at the nearest table top or full scale exercise.  Mark has been married to his wife Sandy for 32 years, has two sons Garrett and Schuyler, and is one of the biggest Shocker fans in Shocker Nation!
