Financial Accountability

United Way of Northwest Florida (UWNWFL) is committed to being a trusted community partner. Our promise is to serve as effective and efficient stewards of our donors’ trust and their contributions. To ensure this promise is kept, UWNWFL is independently governed by a local volunteer board. We also adhere to a stringent set of membership standards, set forth by United Way Worldwide, that focus on governance, ethics, financial management, and general operations.
As an investor, you should view UWNWFL as a key strategic partner in achieving your philanthropic aspirations. Whether your interest is youth development, services that assist people with physical disabilities or providing home-bound seniors with a warm meal, UWNWFL has the capacity and breadth to make your investment more powerful.
Through United Way, you get the scale and capacity of a $5 billion global enterprise – recognized by 98% of all Americans – but organized and operated at a community level, making it accessible to you. We’re big and we’re small at the same time. United Way is the largest private-sector investor in human need and development.
Our promise to you is that we will invest in the efforts that get the greatest results. We will evaluate and reward results, not just effort. We will govern ourselves at the highest degree of accountability and transparency. And, finally, we pledge to remain one of the most efficient non-profit organizations in the world, working to put the maximum amount of resources into the work that changes peoples’ lives and communities.
There are great non-profit organizations in which to invest. Your investment in UWNWFL is unique because of our ability to mobilize resources, individuals, and institutions in a combined effort. Leveraging our relationships with such a diverse group of players produces greater results for our community.
