We adhere to comprehensive requirements for audited financial statements that ensure consistency and transparency on the part of each United Way. 

We require that our financials conform to current best practices among non-profit organizations as well as generally accepted accounting principles. United Way’s system also requires completion of the IRS Form 990 in order to ensure transparency, using consistent standards.  

Independent Organizations 

Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW) is an independent organization founded and governed by local volunteers to unite people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community. TAUW is a member of United Way Worldwide and is required to complete annual certification requirements for membership. 

Strict Checks and Balances 

To ensure that TAUW is operated in a fiscally responsible manner, a rigorous system of checks and balances is in place. With the support of our volunteer Finance and Audit Committee, as well as our Board of Directors, we are continually improving our fiscal performance by leveraging the financial and management expertise in our community. In addition to the organization’s operating budget, the Board of Directors reviews and approves its community funding decisions.  


TAUW’s financials are audited by an independent CPA firm each year. These independent auditors reported our financial statements fairly and accurately reflect the financial situation of the Tulsa Area United Way. A voluntary Finance and Audit Committee approves the annual audit, which is then reviewed by the Board of Directors.  


Receipts For Your Donation

Tulsa Area United Way routinely provides documentation for tax purposes to all donors who contribute at least $250 in a single calendar year via payment of:  cash, check, credit card, or stock gifts. (For such contributions under $250, you may request a tax receipt by sending an email to PLEDGEPROCESSING@TULSAUNITEDWAY.ORG. Please provide your name, address, approximate date of contribution payment and amount.) You should expect your tax receipt to be emailed to your current email on file or mailed by U.S. mail by January 31 of the year following your gift.

For any paid donation made through our website a receipt is generated at the time of the transaction. This receipt should be used for tax purposes. In the event the donor does not have a record of this receipt, please make a request by emailing PLEDGEPROCESSING@TULSAUNITEDWAY.ORG.

The IRS requires that gifts made through payroll deduction be documented through earnings statement(s) provided by your employer along with a copy of your pledge card that contains wording that “No goods or services were received in return for the gift.”
