Spending/Efficiency

At United Way of King County, more than 98 cents of every donated dollar goes to meet community needs.

We achieve this efficiency by running a lean operation, with only essential staff. We also subject every purchase to several levels of scrutiny. Finally, we have the benefit of an endowment — begun by Bill and Melinda Gates and generously funded by thousands of people throughout the community. Its earnings help offset our core expenses.
