Review for United Way of the Greater Capital Region, Albany, NY, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

This organization is well governed by our Board of Directors. We have been through some difficult times and a merger a few years ago that did not go very well. New management and a renewed commitment on the part of our Board have us headed in the right direction. A new Campaign team is in place and the community Impact agenda is finally on target and moving forward. Our Board is very positive and feels we are headed in the right direction.
We take our fiduciary responsibilities very seriously and our overhead is coming down due to creative fund raising and budget management.
Outreach to agencies who were unhappy has been a priority and a renewed commitment from the community is developing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Some difficult staff changes should have happened sooner.
