ABSTRACT
ABSTRACT Allocations to member agencies in 1962, 1967, and 1972 were examined for a sample of 66 United Funds. It was argued that the allocations to agencies would be a function of the power of the agency in the Fund, which was determined by the agency's dependence on the Fund and the Fund's dependence on the agency. As expected, there was a positive correlation between outside funds raised and resources received from the United Fund. and this result held when various community demographic variables were introduced into the analysis as controls. Further, as predicted by the power-dependence formulation, the relationship between outside funds and allocations from the United Fund was larger for agencies that were less dependent on the Fund and on whom the Fund was more dependent.
