WE ADHERE TO COMPREHENSIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS THAT ENSURE CONSISTENCY AND TRANSPARENCY ON THE PART OF EACH UNITED WAY.

Our requirements for our financials are based on current best practices among non-profits as well as generally accepted accounting principles. The United Way system also includes requirements for completion of the IRS Form 990 to ensure transparency using consistent standards.


INDEPENDENT ORGANIZATIONS

United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha & Pierce Counties (UW-GWP) is an independent organization founded and governed by local volunteers to unite people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community. UW-GWP is a member of United Way Worldwide and annually completes certification of strict membership requirements.


STRICT CHECKS AND BALANCES

UW-GWP has a stringent system of checks and balances in place to ensure it is operated in a sound fiscal manner. Through our volunteer Finance and Audit Committee, as well as our Board of Directors, we draw upon the financial and management expertise in our community to continuously improve our fiscal performance. The organization’s operating budget, as well as its community funding decisions, are reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors.


AUDIT

Each year, UW-GWP undergoes an annual financial statement audit by an independent CPA firm. These independent auditors reported our financial statements fairly and accurately present the financial position of UW-GWP. The annual audit is approved by the volunteer Finance and Audit Committee and is also reviewed by the Board of Directors.


FULL TRANSPARENCY

UW-GWP’s work is made possible thanks to the support of thousands of individual investors and Goodhue, Wabasha & Pierce County employers who trust us to prudently invest their donations on behalf of the common good. Information regarding donations is available to all donors, and we welcome questions regarding our investments in programs and services.

Below you will find UW-GWP’s audited financial statements and Form 990.
