WETA, 20 other nonprofits drop from United Way

Print More

PubTV station WETA is among 21 mid-Atlantic nonprofits that have dropped out of United Way and instead joined forces with Community 1st, a new fund-raising consortium. The groups cited declining numbers in workplace donations, as well as “lingering distrust,” as The Washington Post reports, of the local United Way. A fraudulent accounting scandal sent the group’s former chief executive to prison in 2004.
