Navajo United Way takes our role as steward of donor money very seriously. We engage community volunteers to oversee every aspect of our management and financial systems to ensure that we are operating at the highest levels of professionalism and excellence. We also submit to an annual independent audit to ensure continued financial responsibility and accountability to inspire trust and confidence in all our outgoing supporters.
Navajo United Way is committed to accountability and transparency.
We have a responsibility to our donors, partners and the community itself to ensure that the dollars entrusted to us are invested in ways that will produce measurable results and that we operate efficiently.
We also believe that setting standards for our local partners is critical in achieving our mission and success. Our investment strategy uses a volunteer-driven, competitive grant funding model that unites us with projects involving many business, government and nonprofit partners.
We share common goals related to understanding the needs of the community, identifying best practices, and collaborating to obtain results and increase our long term impact in the community.
We are an independent 501(c)(3) organization founded and governed by local volunteers to help our Diné People in our communities and surrounding areas .
We are also a member of United Way Worldwide and annually complete certification of strict membership requirements that include:
All United Ways are separate, nonprofit corporations who raise funds for their local communities and are governed by local volunteers. To operate under the umbrella of “United Way,” members must adhere to very strict membership requirements, including United Way Worldwide’s Standards of Excellence. These standards require participating United Ways to submit a detailed self-assessment biannually and detailed revenue and expense information yearly, plus an annual certification to very strict legal, governance, trademark, ethics, reporting, designation fee, and audit requirements.
