February 27, 2023

Stroudsburg, PA – Pocono Mountains United Way has earned a 2023 Platinum Seal of Transparency on Guidestar, a premier resource for philanthropy and nonprofit research. This demonstrates transparency to potential donors and is a sign of confidence that the organization shows where money is allocated and the results that have been seen from budgets in previous years.

“Operating with transparency is a value of our organization,” said President/CEO of Pocono Mountains United Way Michael Tukeva. “Much of the work we do requires trust and relationship building. This seal captures that importance.”

Being awarded the Platinum Seal of Transparency means that PMUW met the requirements for the Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards as well as the Platinum requirements. One of the requirements to earn the Platinum level was to provide a strategic plan of the last five years along with sharing outcome data showing the progress made as of 2022.
