That commercial they air about giving to united way is wrong, they didn't include the part about the chief in jeffersontown stealing $200,000, or the incompetent dishonest CEOs. Don't Give to United Way.

UW funds many different programs in town. Google the information. You can always give directly to any of those organizations you want. Personally, if this is true, it is no reflection on the people here in BG. Most non-profits run as their own operation,hence they have their own tax audits because their finanicals are separate from the state organization and are ONLY accountable for their own operation. Look at this way too. At least you have a choice where your money goes and the government is not making you donate with your tax money. These organizations rely on the support of their community. Dollars spent keep people off the streets and help foster people to become tax paying citizens.

United Way simply takes your money mostly through payroll deduction and decides which nonprofit gets your money. Many employers coerce employees to give to UW to make the company "look good."

United Way takes between 20 and 30% of your money to pay their overhead. It is not a good deal.

Sounds like a disgruntled somebody to me? Unless you work in sales or non-profits, you can't relate. These people work by the seat of their pants to raise money. It is dog-eat-dog for sure.

(1) there is too much money skimmed off the top before it reaches those in need.(2) The people lie to you when they say you can designate all your funds to just one of the charities. Yes they can do that but your full amount is subtracted from the overall money the charity would get anyway. In other words,you're still supporting groups you don't believe in.(3)If you work in one county and work in another,they tell you at the meetings that they can send your money back to your county but it doesn't get done.(4) Just say thanks,but no thanks and send your donation to your charity DIRECT and offer your UW rep a copy of the check.

This could verywell be true. Best way to help people is to give to people that need it not to organizations that skim 60% off the top.

United Way makes me sick to my stomach. How many of the supporters of the united way and the members of the organization would truely help someone in need? How many would pick a hitchiker up off the road? How many would go spend time with a homeless person and open there home to them? How many would go buy all these kids at the trailer park a new bike?? None. They only help out because they get a huge tax cut and it benefits there wealthy ass with all the free dinners they get. Plus they never admit how many volunteers steal from the organization.

United way is a joke. Anyone who supports them is worthless.
