Official Charity Response

For the fiscal year ending in 2015, the United Way of Hunterdon County had a higher than usual overhead rate due to the opening of a bricks and mortar community volunteer center.  This was built with the help of 175 volunteers over just 100 days. This community volunteer center is the first of its kind in New Jersey and its intent is to host United Way programs, increase engagement, both in terms of awareness of community needs, and respond to community needs.  The certificate of occupancy was not received until November after the fiscal year ended, so the expenses tied to the build were expensed instead of  being capitalized.
