Ethics & Accountability

Like the 1,300 other United Ways in the country, Capital Area United Way is an autonomous 501(c)(3) organization that is governed by a local, all-volunteer board of directors.

Capital Area United Way is committed to ensuring gifts are invested in the most effective way to provide maximum results. 

Our budget and finances are audited by an independent accounting firm and carefully reviewed by the members of the Finance and Audit committees and the board of directors.


Financial Statements & Documents

United Way volunteers, employees and representatives have a responsibility to uphold the highest ethical standards. We believe these standards go beyond compliance with laws and regulations - calling us to fulfill higher obligations as stewards of the public trust. The board of directors and United Way staff approve the code annually and board members are required to personally certify their compliance to it.
