Daniele Zanotti

President & CEO

United Way Greater Toronto

In his over 20 years of experience in the public and non-profit sectors, Daniele's work is guided by one core value -- to work in and with community across all sectors to create positive change.

As CEO of United Way York Region, he played a pivotal role in the merger of United Ways across Toronto and York Region in 2015. Under his leadership, the organization continues to apply an increasingly regional lens -- in April, joining with Peel Region to form United Way Greater Toronto, the largest United Way in the world and largest funder of social services outside of government.

This scaled-up approach is improving opportunities for donors, volunteers, and partners across Peel, Toronto and York Region, and building capacity to expand local investments. The organization continues to innovate digitally to support an uprising of care that will engage 1 million people by 2025.

Daniele holds a Masters in Social Work from the University of Toronto and sits on advisory committees and boards across the region. He lives in Vaughan with his wife and two children.
