Accountability and Transparency
Financial accountability and transparency are at the heart of United Way of Santa Rosa County's ability to inspire trust and confidence in donors and communities. Financial management policies and procedures reflect established accounting practices. Effective internal controls are in place. Funded organizations are required to meet United Way’s standards of accountability, transparency, evaluation, diversity, and ethical behavior.
An annual audit is conducted by an independent certified public accounting firm and is reviewed by United Way of Santa Rosa County's volunteer board of directors. The board reviews and approves the annual financial plan and budget in addition to reviewing the actual revenue and expenses of UWSRC compared to the financial plan at each board meeting. The board approved a code of ethics for both staff and volunteers, which includes provisions for ethical management, conflict of interest, publicity, fundraising practices, and full and fair disclosure.
