Partner Agency Accreditation Standards
River Cities United Way is committed to assuring that our donor contributions are used effectively in addressing the needs of our community. As part of this commitment we require our partner agencies meet and adhere to quality standards of operation.
These standards are reviewed during the accreditation process. Those health and human service providers with exemplary fiscal accountability and the capacity to produce outcomes will be considered viable for partnership with River Cities United Way.
As a partner agency producing programs that make a community impact your organization may be eligible for funding opportunities through River Cities United Way and would receive recognition by other funders for excellent governance as well as exposure through River Cities United Way's communications tools including our Campaign Materials.
