I donate to a different charity through my company's united way campaign. The first year's donation, I had to fight for 6 months to get them to give the money to my charity. Then they took their 15% of my donation and never passed on my company's match to my donation.
The second year's donations have not been giving to my charities yet either.
My donations and my company's match has totaled, $4160... What my charity has seen is $884.
I am sure United Way does some good for the community but from my experience, I could never believe it.
