A Streamlined United Way

A letter to the Editor in the Washington Post
A Streamlined United Way: "A Streamlined United Way

Thursday, June 1, 2006; Page A18

We appreciate the diligence The Post has shown over the years in reporting on the status of nonprofits and United Way of the National Capital Area in particular. Its reporting helps ensure that all nonprofits will seek the highest standards of transparency and accountability.

That's why we are disturbed about recent allegations concerning the reporting of fundraising projections at United Way [Metro, May 22]. Everyone who has worked with United Way for the past 3 1/2 years knows that the board and staff have made massive changes to restore the integrity of the organization and win back the trust of the community, for the benefit of the many nonprofit agencies that depend on United Way of the National Capital Area."
