2021-22 Advisory Council
The United Way of Union County has been a valued community partner since it was founded in 1958. It is a local organization,
guided by neighbors you know, volunteers who live and work right down the street.
It is governed by an active and responsible advisory council, whose members serve three-year terms, have no

Your Pledge to Us; Our Pledge to You
When you complete a United Way pledge form, you’re pledging to make a donation to our organization. But the United
Way is also making a pledge to you: to use your investment wisely to make the greatest possible impact in our community.
This is not a pledge taken lightly at the United Way of Union County. Much effort is made to live up to the highest
standards of charitable accountability.
Each year, the United Way of Union County must prove that it meets 13 requirements for United Way of America
membership along with verification of the status of 44 indicators that demonstrate it embodies the intent of the
United Way remains the first and only Union County non-profit organization to meet the new 20 standards of
Charitable Accountability established by the Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio. This allows another set of
independent eyes to oversee and validate the operations of our organization.
Each month, an independent CPA reviews our monthly financial statements and every year, a different firm
performs an audit of our organization. Our most recent audit is linked above.
In addition, United Way files the IRS tax form 990. Each of these documents is available upon request for
public review and inspection. Our most recent 990 can be accessed here.
To review our financial statements or audit, please call our office at (937) 644-8381.
