UNITED WAY OF THE GREATER TRIANGLE INC
November 26, 2012

First I should state I am a donor, since it is convent to denote from salary deductions to United Way.
However, it is clear that the United Way of the Greater Triangle (UWGT) is not complying with the "Standards for Charity Accountability" as monitored by the Better Business Bureau (BBB)'s "Wise Giving Alliance", which provides under National Charity Reports a detailed report that can be found at web address:
http://www.bbb.org/charity-reviews/national/human-services/united-way-of-the-greater-triangle-in-morrisville-nc-19701/all
The violations listed under BBB's "Standards for Charity Accountability" are numerous and include:
Standard #7: Effectiveness Report: UWGT does not meet this Standard because: Although it has produced a written effectiveness assessment report, the report did not include recommendations for future actions.
Standard #16: Annual Report: UWGT does not meet this standard because the most recent annual report did not include: Total income, Total expenses for each program in the same categories that appear in the organization’s financial statements, Total fund raising expenses, Total administrative expenses, Total end of year net assets.
Standard #18: Donor Privacy: UWGT does not meet this Standard because the privacy policy on this website, www.triangleunitedway.org does not indicate: What security measures are in place to protect personal information that is collected.
Also standard #15: Truthful Materials: could not be verified by BBB.
