Why are we receiving designation information / payments from United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County?
United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County processes United Way fundraising campaigns for employers all across Wisconsin and the United States. So even though we may not be your local United Way, if you received a payment or designation notification email then we are processing gifts for donors in your area. As the processor, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County is responsible for sharing donor information and distributing payments (less any fees).
How do we get access to donor and payment reports for designations to our non-profit?
Someone at your non-profit needs to be registered to have access to the Agency Reports Portal. The Agency Reports Portal has a Donor Detail Report that provides real-time information about donors and their designated pledge to your non-profit. The Agency Reports Portal also has payment reports for designation funds distributed to your nonprofit.
How and when will United Way payout designations to our non-profit?
Designation information is available in real-time on the Portal so you are able to thank donors for their gift in a timely manner. Most designation information is available during our annual fundraising campaign (September – December). Your Agency Contact, the person who is registered to have access to the Portal, will receive an email when we process the first pledged designation to your non-profit for the annual fundraising campaign.
Payments for pledged designations generally occur the following year in either a one time or quarterly payment (less any fees), except for Paid on Received campaigns. Your Agency Contact will receive a payment notification email for each payout distribution.
United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County has transitioned to direct deposit as our primary method of payment. To avoid delays in payment, register for direct deposit now.
