Donor Designations

We honor and respect the many non-profit organizations that make our communities stronger and we appreciate your support of the causes that you care about most. We also want to make it as easy as possible for you to direct a portion of your support to qualifying non-profit organizations through your employer’s workplace giving campaign with United Way. United Way of Southern Maine will deduct fundraising and administrative costs (12.7% per designation for our 2021 campaign) from donor designations to other non-profits to cover the costs of collecting, processing, distributing, and fundraising. This amount is determined annually using information from our operations, the most recent IRS-990 and an approved formula.
