Correction

August 09, 2002

The headline of a July 26 story mischaracterized the United Way of Central Maryland's policy on uncollected pledges. United Way withholds a portion of most gifts that are made by payroll deduction to make up for unfulfilled pledges to a number of charities, but the rest of each gift goes to the donor's designated charity. While the policy has not been advertised or published, it has not been kept secret from anyone who inquired about it, as the headline implied.

The Sun regrets the error.
