United Way of Southern Chester County embraces inclusiveness,
diversity, and equal opportunity as core values. We understand that the
community is stronger when the gifts of all people are respected, embraced and
maximized to build a healthier community.
We consider non-discrimination
a vital component to any organization and we mentor area agencies to adopt best
practices and a strong non-discrimination policy.
In November of 2014, the UWSCC Board of Directors approved our
Policy on Eligibility for Partner Agencies which contains criteria addressing
non-discrimination in all levels of a non-profit organization to be eligible
for United Way funding.
UWSCC requires all agencies requesting United Way funding to have a written board-approved policy, stating that the agency does not
discriminate with respect to board members, staff, or volunteers, or in its
recipients of services on the basis of race, color, sex or gender, age,
national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation or other
characteristics protected by law.
