At United Way of Weld County, the commitment of our corporate and community partners are integral to our success. We’re proud to announce that we’ve partnered with local companies who have chosen to designate their corporate gifts to help underwrite operating costs.
Cornerstone Partners are companies and foundations who choose to direct all or a portion of their corporate contributions to administrative and fundraising expenses. Partnership requirements include an annual gift valued at $5,000 or more which covers the cost portion of the United Way budget. The gift can be cash or in-kind. In-kind donations must replace an operating expense.
This special recognition program ensures that money donated by individuals goes to help people. United Way does have administrative and fund raising costs. By extensively using volunteers, we are proud to report that our administrative and fundraising cost is 16.2% and is among the lowest of most major charities and agencies in our community. Each year, Cornerstone partnerships lower this cost.
