Our Reports

Always Transparent.

Our local United Way belongs to the entire community and we invite you to review our reports submitted to IRS. In addition to our form 990s that you can find here, we are audited each year by an independent firm. Our finance committee, board of directors, and executive committee provide layers of accountability and volunteers work hours to ensure that each dollar raised is put to work to help create more opportunities for our neighbors.
