I'd like to give to the United Way of Douglas County this year. As I'm making my selections, I'd like to know how those agencies spend their money. Is there any way to find out how their funds are spent, look at their budgets and the executive director's salary? Is this public information?
The United Way of Douglas County has its latest audit and 990 documents available on its Web site. From the home page, www.unitedwaydgco.org, click on "About us." The documents are available beneath the headline "Financial Accountability." Erika Dvorske, president and CEO, said she is available to answer questions about the organization. She can be reached at 843-6626.
