The Process for Affiliation

To become affiliated, the agency must successfully complete a certification process:

  • The agency initially applies for affiliation through a formal application process, and once accepted must re-certify every three years.
  • A committee of community volunteers reviews each agency application and makes recommendations for certification based on established standards in the areas of:

- fiscal soundness and accountability;
- organizational management practices;
- governing board of directors;
- personnel policies and procedures;

- adherence to organization bylaws;
- organizational planning; and
- nondiscrimination in the provision of services, hiring of staff and placement of volunteer board members.

  • Once certified, an agency is eligible to apply for financial support for specific programs from the Somerset County United Way, as well as benefit from other support services we provide.
