- UWHC is independent from all other United Ways and is a local non-profit organization registered in the State of New Jersey and qualified as not for profit under section 501 (c) 3 of the IRS Code. Contributions are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes in accordance with applicable regulations.

Decisions about the investment vehicles offered are determined by ING in conjunction with AXA Advisors LLC and cannot be made independently by UWHC staff or Board volunteers.
- Recipient agencies of donor designations pay UWHC a fee of 7% for all designated pledges received to help offset the cost of fundraising from the local private campaign.
- UWHC does not withhold donor choice pledges. These pledges are distributed to local United Ways and designated agencies at the end of the quarter in which they are received.
