United Way's own net fundraising and administrative budget for 2010 stands at $148,728. That means roughly 18% of the money raised during the 2009-10 campaign will go to cover United Way's overhead. A non-profit organization meets one of the charitable accountability standards of the Better Business Bureau if 35% of the money raised goes toward fundraising and administrative costs. Additionally, $41,200 has been allocated to "Pledge Loss" in anticipation that 5% of the money pledged by donors in the 2009-10 campaign will not be paid in 2010.

United Way works to bring neighbors and resources together to improve lives in Union County. More than just a fundraiser, United Way collaborates with local businesses, government, and non-profit organizations to solve pressing social service issues large and small.
