United Way, denying any lack of responsiveness, said it was continuing an extensive study of the needs and quality of services provided by agencies to Mexican Americans. Cleaver, speaking for United Way in Houston, insists that "we've been funding minority agencies for a long time . . . we've had a big push for them in the last five years." He adds that, "what we know about the people we're serving through the agencies today is that we have a higher percentage of blacks being served by Fund agencies and a higher percentage of Mexican Americans being served by Fund agencies." If the claims of unfairness in funding are true, then where does the money go? This year 10 agencies alone will receive 53 percent of the $15,333,560 budget. Only one of these agencies, The DePelchin Faith Home, had its allocation decreased from last year. The average increase in funding for the remaining nine agencies is 15.3 percent. Conversely, the highest funded of the three newly accepted applicants (The Houston Area Women's Center's shelter for battered women) will receive $33,000, or .2 percent of the total pie. Although this amount only covers 25 percent of the program's costs, Director Nikki Van Hightower is not disgruntled over the center's allocation. "United Way really encouraged us to apply," she explains. "We applied for that amount and got it. We have no gripes about the application process." However, as Bothwell of NCRP notes, "With the same [or greater] amounts of money going to the same agencies year after year, it's not surprising that precious few new agencies are admitted." Until recently, United Way in Houston operated without any real competition and only passive dissent. But a rival coalition of charities, the Black United The Houston Post/Sat., Sept. 8, 1979 Planned Parenthood leaves fund after bishop calls for boycott CORPUS CHRIST! (AP) — Planned Parenthood withdrew as an agency of the United Way Friday after the Roman Catholic hierarchy urged a boycott of the fund because some of the money would jto to the family planning group. Bishop Thomas Drury had said Catholics should nor contribute to the com- munityfund-raislngageney because Planned Parenthood — which offers abortion referrals — joined Corpus Christi United Way in June. United Way officials had said the boycott could re- suit in a loss of $800,000 from their goal of $2.4 mil lion. Planned Parenthood would have received about $2,500. More than 25,000 Catholic families — about a third of the areas population — live in this midsection of the Texas Gulf coast. The board of South Texas Planned Parenthood of Corpus Christi voted Friday to withdraw membership "so that the position of the Catholic leadership will not injure the many people who receive the valuable services of the United Way agency," said Paula Campbell, board chairman. She said her agency "will continue to meet the needs of the community by providing multiple family life services." Monsignor William T. Thompson, vicar general of the Coastal Bend Diocese, said Drury "was very pleased with the news" and would ur#e Catholics to support United Way. This week marks the beginning of the 1979 fund- raising effort by the more than 2,200 United Way campaigns across the country. Last year, they raised a record $1.3 billion and supported .'J7.000 local agencies. Fund, is being organized by a predominantly female group of black citizens. It is supported by leaders of minority agencies who feel cut off from United Way funding. "It's still very much in the organizational stages, . . . but the idea is to initiate fundraising programs to support some of the black organizations that aren't being supported by United Way," explains Joan Edwards, Director of Houston's Fair Housing Division and a member of the steering committee for the Black United Fund. Reluctant to make a general statement about United Way's minority funding practices, Edwards states "We're still in the process of gathering statistics and data on just what extent local United Way does fund black organizations." Progress is being made around the country in breaking the solicitation monopoly of United Way. Five state legislatures have passed laws opening up workplace solicitation of state employees to all charities which receive tax deductible contributions or to diverse charitable fundraising federations. Numerous local governmental units (cities, counties, school districts) have also allowed federations other than United Way to solicit employees and make payroll deductions. While only three major businesses are known to permit most charities to participate in their employee contributions programs, many more businesses have decided to expand their employees' charitable gift options by allowing at least one other charity than United Way to solicit at the workplace. Bothwell would like to see the United Way "confront the facts" and criticisms and try to make the system more flexible and responsive to the constant changes in society.
