Reports And Policies 

For United Way, success means measurable improvements in the communities we serve. Setting high standards for ourselves and for our local partners is critical for that success.

Annually, all United Ways certify their adherence to standards that include comprehensive requirements for financial reporting, governance, ethics, diversity, and operations. Specifically, United Ways must meet the following:


Tax-Exempt Status

IRS Form 990



U.S. Patriot Act

Anti-Terrorism Compliance Measures

Privacy Policy


Diversity And Inclusion

We strive to be a model of diversity and inclusion, with our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers reflecting the many faces, cultures, and walks of life that proudly make up our communities. We respect, value, and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are.  We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values.
