Ever wonder where your donations to charitable organizations go? Portland? Seattle? New York? 

Ever wonder how much the charity deducts for campaign and administrative expenses? With United Way of Clatsop County (UWCC) it all stays here, and all the donations you make go directly to UWCC agencies with campaign and administrative expenses paid by generous local businesses.

This is made possible by The Cornerstone Program, put into effect several years ago to assure that all the donation dollars are spent in helping our neighbors in Clatsop County. In addition, United Way is the fortunate recipient of many in-kind donations of goods and services. At UWCC it’s all local, all the time.

United Way recently kicked off its 54th annual giving campaign. Important recipients include: Clatsop Community Action (food banks and housing programs); the Women’s Resource Center and Hutchens House; the American Red Cross local volunteer organization; Lighthouse for Kids; Lives in Transition and seven other deserving local agencies .
