Role:  Volunteer
 

Review for United Charitable, Tysons, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I long resisted starting my own project because of all that is involved in starting a Not for profit organization and the cost of administration that would require accountant and legal services. All disproportionate in cost and time to the size of our budget and the time available.

United Charitable allowed me to finally create Global Legacy Programs and concentrate on projects while they shoulder all administrative duties for a small fee. I depend on them for accounting, legal counseling, and a staff always ready to offer support. It is a wonderful solution for all of us who want to do good on a small scale.

UC also makes avaiable courses in fundraising, grant proposal writing and other subjects that have helped me learn what I needed to make my GLP thrive.

Review for United Charitable, Tysons, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After retiring, I worked as a volunteer for two humanitarian foundations. This helped me decide where I wanted to make a difference and how. I wanted to have my own project and United Charitable Programs helped me make the transition. I wanted to be able to select projects and apply to them the funds I raised. I however lacked the administrative know how and hiring a support team was beyond my possibilities.

UCP took these concerns off my shoulders; all the administrative, legal, and accounting details being handled by them for a minute fee they retain out of deposited donations. This has freed me to concentrate on projects while keeping operating costs at a minimum. Additionally, they offer frequent on line free classes on many subjects I needed to learn more about, such as fundraising, planning events, doing marketing campaigns, etc.

The only way it would make sense to leave UCP is if we grow to the point where our donations amount into a very very large sum and the percentage retained by UCP ends up exceeding the normal cost of hiring a staff....but that is still a long time away!!!! and UCP is a wonderful parent and guide to my Global Legacy Programs as well as many other chapters of UCP who are doing good all over the world and could not exist without UCP's support. I share with them the credit for each of our humanitarian project achieved.

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