Through the donor choice program, donors can direct their United Way campaign gifts to member agencies and other eligible nonprofit organization in the community. Designated organizations must have a Section 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS and have a local presence. Donor designations to non-member organizations are assessed a fee (currently 12%) that covers the cost of raising, processing, verifying and distributing the funds.
Please contact United Way at (812) 334-8370 if you are affiliated with a nonprofit that is interested in completing documentation to become part of the donor choice program.
