Donated to United Way a good chunk of change last year through UPS. Used the donor designation option for five different charities of my choosing. One of the charities was to send disadvantaged youths to summer camp at the YMCA and designated $600 to send one kid. Received a letter in the mail yesterday thanking me for my donation of $252.84. WTF? What happened to the rest of it? Does United Way pay in installments or do they choose not to follow my wishes? This is the second time I have been screwed by United Way in the last 4 years. Not going to give them another chance for the third strike. From now on I will write my checks directly to my chosen charities. Thanks for letting me vent!
