2016 Accreditation Process

United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) is committed to assuring our donors that their contributions are used in the most effective ways. As part of this commitment, UWSN accredited agencies receive formal acknowledgement from the community that their work meets the highest standards of excellence for nonprofits, and provides the agency the opportunity to be part of a strong, healthy and positive network of nonprofit organizations serving the needs of our community.

The standards and agency applications are reviewed by the Accreditation Council consisting of community volunteers and business leaders. Health and human service providers with exemplary fiscal accountability and the capacity to produce outcomes and provide accountability reports, are fully encouraged to complete the accreditation packet.

As a partner agency producing programs and results with communitywide impact, your agency will receive exposure through UWSN’s communications tools including our website (uwsn.org) and marketing collateral. In addition, your agency may be recognized by other funders for excellent organizational practices by meeting the UWSN accreditation requirements.

No new applications are being accepted at this time for accrediation. Please watch our website for the new date and criteria. Thank you,
