I dealt with the United Way in the Kansas City area for more than several years. I even was on a couple of their committees for raising money and
contacting groups. That being said, I'm no expert , but I do have practical knowledge.
As a whole, the group does support some organizations I do not agree with. You can opt out of these groups for your donations. You do realize there
are quite a few charities that fall under the United Way name.
It's not just one charity, but a family of different charities, under one organization. There are around 100 local groups and 50 national groups
under the United Way in the Kansas City chapter.
Check into your local chapter for groups you want to support. You can have your money go to that/those groups only.
I don't think you will find what you are looking for with the United Way. I think it's an honorable institution.
