United Way of Mercer County’s 03/2018 audit states that United Way of Mercer County has a “Qualified Opinion” that is outlined in the "Basis for Qualified Opinion". It reads, “Pursuant to the Agency's request, we did not attempt to confirm annual campaign revenues and pledge receivables through direct correspondence with the significant amount of donors, and were unable to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence about annual campaign revenues and pledge receivables by other auditing procedures..” For this reason, we have issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the FYE 03/2018 Audit.


The nature of the concerns raised in this organization's Financial Audit are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions.
