This is a great organization to donate to. They are able to allocate the funds to specific areas to assist the people of Hawaii. If you prefer, you can even designate which non-profit agency receives 100% of your donation. I've been giving to AUW for over 20 years now!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
You should analyze their form 990 to see where the money goes, how it is spent, and where it is wasted. I was a long time donor until someone showed me their taxes. I no longer donate to Aloha United Way. An example is their Society of Young Leaders activities which breaks even and doesn't profit. SYL should focus less on social activities that benefit themselves and focus on the community which is what they get paid for. Tax info is public information and the public should look at it to assess overall management of donations. I give monies directly to programs and avoid these non-profits.
