General Campaign Donor Choice Program Certification
The United Way of Buffalo & Erie County offers the "Donor Choice" program through our General Campaign, which allows our donors to choose another not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) Health or Human Service charity of their choice, to receive a tax-deductible donation. Organizations eligible under this category that have recently received and may receive future donor-designated contributions, are required to recertify annually (whether located in Erie County or not).
During the recertification period, our United Way contacts selected agencies and requests their participation in validating contact information, current IRS eligibility, and the USA PATRIOT Act *. This process is conducted online and only agencies that respond and qualify will be eligible to receive donor-designated contributions through the General (Regular Buffalo) Campaign. PLEASE NOTE: this is NOT related to the SEFA or CFC application or annual recertification.
