Data were drawn from a 1994 data set collected by the UWMB through its allocation request package (ARP).
However, model 2 shows that larger organizations are not likely to have a higher percentage of total revenues from UWMB, in contrast to hypothesis 1b.
Model 4 suggests that while nonprofits with a higher proportion of total revenues from UWMB have larger boards, those boards are not associated with greater racial and gender diversity of membership.
Contrary to our prediction, model 8 in table 3 shows that volunteer use is not a significant indicator of UWMB funding.
A similar pattern appears if one returns to models 3 and 4, in which the racial diversity of board members is a positive and significant indicator of government funding, though it is not a significant indicator of UWMB funding.
The use of volunteers is not significantly associated with a higher proportion of revenues from UWMB.
Model 17 in table 3 shows that smaller nonprofit size, larger boards, and a higher percentage of administration and fundraising expenses are associated with a higher proportion of total revenues from the UWMB. Model 17 explains 46 percent of the variance in the percentage of revenues from the United Way.
Throughout the early 1990s, UWMB experienced several years of funding turbulence and a decline in monies raised because of significant changes in the region's corporate landscape, an economic recession, and lingering effects of the Aramony affair at the United Way of America.
