Empowering anyone to be a philanthropist
At United Way for Greater Austin we are making long-term changes in our community by developing and bringing together philanthropists, including individuals, nonprofits, businesses and government. For almost 90 years we’ve facilitated employee giving campaigns and today we run Austin’s largest volunteer network – creating opportunities for anyone to be a philanthropist.
To help our community continue to thrive, we develop, train and deploy individuals, families and organizations across the Greater Austin area to make an impact:
- Helping businesses engage employees and connect to our community: Employee Campaign
- Connecting dedicated supporters to their peers to create a community of giving: Giving Societies
- Growing the next generation of community leaders: Hands On Central Texas
We are solving problems not just for one person with one need, but creating solutions for a large community with large needs. The act of giving binds us all together – whether that’s through donated time or money – and it joins us in the shared missions of making sure our community continues to thrive.
