United Way of Snohomish County

EIN: 91-0606507


United Way of Snohomish County is a funder, partner, convener, and catalyst for positive, lasting community change. Founded in Everett in 1940, our local United Way reflects the community it serves, and we are entering the complex conversation around poverty in a more focused way. We are the only organization in Snohomish County funding multiple cross-sector Collaboratives—groups of community partners with a shared action plan—working together on long-term outcomes for children birth to age 8 and their families struggling with low income. By focusing on the well-being of both the child and the adults in their lives together, we are creating long-term solutions by dismantling systems and unlocking access to family success.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
