About United Way of America

Accordingly, United Way of America established new Standards of Excellence, a comprehensive description of aspirational benchmark standards and best practices that are designed to enhance the overall effectiveness of the 1,350 United Way affiliates. They reflect the organization's fundamental shift from its traditional role as a "pass through" fund raising organization to working with community leaders to identify and address long-term societal needs and improve people's lives. The release of the Standards of Excellence follows the implementation of new, stringent membership requirements for financial reporting and accountability. For United Ways across the nation, these standards reaffirmed the values of transparency, accountability and disclosure through compliance with our robust membership accountability requirements. However, over the last three years, there have been more than 50 United Ways that could not meet one or more of our stringent standards and have been disaffiliated. Today, the primary measure of the United Way's success is no longer the fundraising thermometer, but rather how well we deliver on our mission to make measurable improvements in communities nationwide. Local United Ways throughout America will offer an accounting of their operations against this key metric and we look to our investors, volunteers, partners and society as a whole to hold us to this higher standard. Brian A. Gallagher is president and chief executive officer of the United Way of America.
