United Way General Campaign Donor Choice Program - AGENCY CERTIFICATION / RECERTIFICATION

Organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and who provide a direct public Health and Human Service, that have recently received and/or may receive impending donor-designated contributions, are required to certify with our United Way annually, regardless of location.  This recertification is also required from our Program Partner agencies to be eligible to receive funding from United Way of Buffalo & Erie County's program investments, in addition to donor contributions.

During this period, we contact selected agencies and will request their participation in validating contact information, current IRS eligibility, and the USA PATRIOT Act (click on link for more information).

This process is conducted online and only agencies that respond may be given consideration to receive prospective donor-designated contributions (and/or focus area funded programs) through the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County General Campaign.  Please note that this recertification is NOT related to the NY State employees' (SEFA) or Federal workers' campaign (CFC), as these are entirely separate requirements.
