Membership requirements with UWW include having a volunteer board of directors who approve the annual operating budget and distributions to the agencies, the accounting requirements of annual audits and filing our IRS Form 990 each year, a written Code of Ethics, and standard campaign reporting to United Way of America. Our audit for the year ended December 31, 2015, is being completed by Jim Robertson, an independent Certified Public Accountant and will be made available in our office for anyone to review.
We are proud to be meeting all Standards set forth by United Way Worldwide. As nonprofits come under additional review from Congress and the public, these standards are considered a model for nonprofit accountability. We proudly display our Recognition plaque and Membership in our office.
