The United Way of Kankakee & Iroquois Counties is dedicated to providing as much information to our donors and the community as possible. One way we have demonstrated this commitment is by becoming Guidestar Exchange Seal certified. Guidestar is the premier source of not-for-profit information.
We have a responsibility to our donors, partners, and the community itself to ensure that the dollars entrusted to us are invested in ways that will produce results for the community, and that we operate efficiently. This includes providing information on how your donation is spent.
We also believe that setting standards for our local partners is critical in achieving our mission and success. Our agency funding policies are volunteer-driven and rely on a rigorous application process, complete with site visits and presentations to a panel of local volunteers and United Way board members.
We are an independent 501(c)(3) organization founded and governed by local volunteers to help people in our community.
