Monday October 11, 2010 | The United Way’s Jane McIntyre

October 8, 2010 at 8:50 am | Posted in Coming Up | 5 Comments

United Way of Central Carolinas has had a long line of shake-ups, beginning with the pay and benefits controversy that caused former Executive Director Gloria Pace King to be forced out two years ago. Since then, the agency has been rebuilding itself, making many changes, and trying to rebuild trust with donors in the region. New Executive Director Jane McIntyre will join us to talk about the struggles the organization still has, including year-round campaigning to try and meet tough fundraising goals, new bylaws created because of the pay controversy and we’ll also talk about the recent million-dollar gift by the Levine Foundation.

  1. Writing from Mooresville, if I donate to the United Way, but specify the funds to be directed to a specific agency how much of the money goes to agency versus to the general United Way Fund? I give to the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem through the United Way.

  2. Please ask her if she is aware of http://www.charitynavigator.org. The United Way does not make the top 10 list of top notch charities. Why?

    Thanks, love your show.

  3. Hey Mike – Love the show,

    I wanted to relay the reason to Ms. McIntyre of why I refuse to donate to United Way. Of the 93 organizations listed, 4 of them openly descriminate against homosexuals and Atheists. I am referring to the Boy Scouts of America. To support an organization that will allow open discrimination against kids is hardly encouraging a feeling of community.

    To Illustrate my point, the BSA’s bigotry tword Atheists appears directly on the youth membership application:

    Excerpt from the Declaration of Religious Principle
    The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God and, therefore, recognizes the religious element in the training of the member, but it is absolutely nonsectarian in its attitude toward that religious training. Its policy is that the home and organization or group with which the member is connected shall give definite attention to religious life. Only persons willing to subscribe to these precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle and to the Bylaws of the Boy Scouts of America shall be entitled to certificates of membership.

    My question for Ms. McIntyre,

    When will the United Way adopt a non-descrimination policy that will weed out organizations that openly descriminates against members of community that the United Way wishes to help? What criteria does the United Way use to evaluate the policies of the organizations it decides to fundraise for?

    Thanks
