What is a 501(c)(3) organization?

 

The 501(c)(3) status is for charitable, educational and religious

organizations. Charitable organizations eligible for status are defined

as those organized and operated for purposes beneficial to the public

interest.

 

United Way of America and member United Way organizations are 501(c)(3)

organizations. The agencies they fund are either 501(c)(3) organizations or other 501(c) exempt organizations recognized as being charitable or having a "public purpose." This status is a central criterion that United Way organizations use in evaluating agencies that are seeking support. United Way also requires the funded agencies to demonstrate fiscal responsibility, the appropriate use of funds and proper accounting standards. Agencies must be non-discriminatory and serve a purpose consistent with the public interest.
