BATAVIA – The Batavia United Way is turning its executive director post from a full-time position to a part-time position so the nonprofit organization can dedicate more of its resources to the programs it funds.

"We want to continue to fulfill our responsibility to our donors," Batavia United Way Board President Ann Gerardi said. "We want to make sure that we are giving every penny we can to the programs we fund."

The Batavia United Way raises funds for programs that directly benefit Batavia residents. The organization currently helps funds programs for 18 different agencies, Gerardi said.

Jody Haltenhof had been the group's executive director for about 14 years, Gerardi said. She recently left the organization after the board made the decision to make the full-time position part-time.

It previously had been a part-time position, Gerardi said.

"When she started, it was very part-time," she said. The position became full-time about two years ago, Gerardi said.

The new Batavia United Way executive director will work between 10 to 15 hours a week, according to the position's job description.

"It could potentially become more," Gerardi said.

Those interested in the position should send a resume to by July 18. The person who is chosen to fill the position will start immediately, she said.

"We want to get the right person in there as soon as possible," Gerardi said. "We have a very energetic board."
