Ways to Give
Whether it’s by donating your time, money or talents, there are many ways to make Austin greater. Find out the various ways you can donate to United Way for Greater Austin. You can even designate your gift to the program that speaks to what you care about most.

Volunteer
Our volunteer center, Hands On Central Texas, matches thousands of volunteers with hundreds of projects looking for help each year. Learn more about our current opportunities for individual volunteers, businesses and nonprofits.

Giving Societies
UWATX donors are committed to making a difference in our community by investing in the future of Austin. Our giving societies are an opportunity to take further action by connecting with other like-minded donors and creating a community of giving.

Employee Giving
We believe that anyone—regardless of income—can be a philanthropist and give of their money or time to our community. Employee campaigns are a simple way to make a difference while creating a more engaged and connected workforce.

We make it easy for you to give each month through payroll deduction, and even provide tools to get your coworkers excited about giving back.

Become a Corporate Partner
United Way for Greater Austin works with Austin-area businesses and their employees to give back to the community and create a lasting impact. Our business partners not only support us financially, but also by giving their time to volunteer projects and serving in leadership roles as campaign chairs.

Join Ruthless Good!

Ruthless Good is not your ordinary fundraiser. Teams work and play together to solve clues to find unique Austin locations and capture photos and answer trivia questions.  With the streets of Austin as the game board, participants have three hours to complete as many activities as possible, earning points all along the way. It’s a great opportunity for students, families, friends and work colleagues to team up and do some good for their community. This year’s event raised more than $100,000 for UWATX! Stay tuned for the 2018 date.
