About Agency Certification:
Being a certified nonprofit partner with United Way is special. It means you can be effective, transparent and dedicated to improving people’s lives in our community.
We thank you as our partner or future partner for taking the time to ensure that our mutual donors’ dollars are being used as effectively as possible. We know that our certification process is strenuous, and it is our goal to help decrease the stress of this process as much as possible without sacrificing our mutual standards.
We also know certification gives our donors the confidence to give to our family of nonprofit organizations without any hesitation over whether we have the community’s best interest in mind. We will brag about you online, we will chat you up in meetings and at employer site visits, and your agency’s name will be highlighted in our annual materials.
For general certification questions, please contact Tom Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-368-3050.
We have received some inquiries about United Way hosting a nonprofit leadership summit again. The short answer is no, but the long and exciting answer is that we are planning something even bigger for 2016!
Over the next six months, United Way will be working with community leaders, nonprofits, school districts, companies and individuals to develop a comprehensive action plan that will allow everyone involved to put together a common agenda that addresses the greatest needs in our communities. As many of you may be familiar with the term – it’s called Collective Impact.
If you believe that working with your organization’s participants to boost their financial capability will increase their likelihood of success in your core activities, please join us to view this exciting new webinar series presented by the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) and brought to you by United Way California Capital Region and Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada.
This five-part series is appropriate both for organizations that are already integrating financial capability services and for those who are just considering getting started.
As a nonprofit agency, we’d like to offer you a table at this agency fair. This is your agency’s exclusive opportunity to meet with state agencies and departments one-on-one, inform attendees of volunteer opportunities and educate guests about the important services you provide to the community.
Booths are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. The admission fee includes a table, 2 chairs, and optional tablecloth.The nonprofit agency fair is set-up outside in direct sunlight. Please make arrangements to bring a pop-up tent.
United Way California Capital Region has proudly joined over 1,000 other United Ways, United Way Worldwide and the FamilyWize community partnership to organize and coordinate community-wide distribution of free prescription drug discount cards.
