United Way of Williamson County is responsible to those it serves and to those who support it. We are proud of the fact that community volunteers make the financial decisions and safeguard the contributions that are invested in our community.
Administrative costs are very low, between 10-15% on average since 2000, and we seek out sponsorships for costs associated with fundraising and special initiatives to help ensure that each dollar contributed through United Way of Williamson County has the maximum possible impact in the community.
United Way of Williamson County’s monthly financial statements are reviewed by community volunteers who serve on the finance committee, the executive committee and the board of directors. UWWC protocols ensure accuracy of record keeping. Additionally, an independent audit firm performs a full audit each year.

Citizens Review Panels
Citizens Review Panels, comprised of local volunteers, review pertinent information of partner agencies to ensure that donor funds are going to operationally sound organizations and that programs are addressing critical needs and making a measurable difference in the community. This group of 70-plus volunteers meets each spring and their tasks include:
- Reviewing funding applications
- Meeting with representatives from each agency applying for funding
- Developing funding recommendations for Community Investment
