United Way volunteers, employees and representatives have a responsibility to uphold the highest ethical standards. We believe these standards go beyond compliance with laws and regulations - calling us to fulfill higher obligations as stewards of the public trust. United Way Worldwide's Code of Ethics sets forth standards and responsibilities toward this end. The Board of Directors and all United Way Worldwide staff approve the code annually and board members are required to personally certify their compliance to it.

Volunteers and staff are encouraged to seek advice and guidance from the Board of Directors, its President, and its Executive Committee on questions about any ethical issue including interpretation or application of this Code. Any known or possible breach of this Code should be disclosed to the Board’s Executive Committee for a prompt and fair resolution.
