When you support UWEC, you are supporting the mission to crush poverty in Erie County. In partnership, we are leveling the playing field for low-income students and their families. Economically disadvantaged children face many barriers to learning and success in school...and ultimately in life. Together, with your help, we are breaking through these barriers, setting children and their families up for success.
If you believe that all students should have the opportunity to succeed and all families should thrive, then you should support UWEC!
United Way strictly adheres to stringent standards of accounting and financial reporting which govern the fiscal affairs of voluntary health and human service organizations. UWEC undergoes a rigorous annual audit by an independent accounting firm. The fiscal activities and reports are monitored throughout the year by the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee.
How the money is distributed is listed on the website and on other materials, including the Annual Report.
