At United Way, we take our role as stewards of contributor dollars very seriously. There is nothing more important than the trust our contributors place in us. We have institutionalized strict governance practices, which include volunteer oversight at every level, to ensure the highest standards of operational efficiency and effectiveness.

United Way provides more than $105 million of social human service impact to the Miami-Dade community. Our administrative costs are below the benchmark established by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance and our ratio of funding to costs is considered “excellent” by the same organization. (Please refer to the Financial Statements / 990 for more details.)


United Way provides services or participates in partnerships to improve the social service system in Miami-Dade County and beyond. Serving as fiscal agent, providing advocacy support via its public policy efforts, or bringing the community together to effect positive change, United Way impact goes beyond the direct economic value of its work.

*Includes allocations and grants to agencies and services as well as distribution of government money, matching gifts, value of services provided by volunteers (per The Independent Sector, valued at $27.20 per hour), and gifts in kind. United Way Distributions and Revenues are from the financials statements as of June 30, 2020.
