Our Work



UWATX programs and activities are designed to jump start and maintain sustainable solutions for low- to moderate- income families and drive collective change by aligning public and private support. Our programs work together collectively to provide low-income families with the skills and resources they need to take an active role in their own success. Our community investments illuminate this commitment.

UWATX’s funding priorities are centered on three interrelated focus areas:
Education: Children and youth are happy, healthy, and prepared for success in school and in life.
Income: Families have equitable access to economic and social opportunities.
Health: Families in Central Texas are physically and mentally healthy.

Within each focus area, UWATX partners with community stakeholders to identify proven strategies toward a common goal. Community investment grants represent a strategic opportunity to identify critical community partners, and enhance and create active collaborations for the greatest impact.

UWATX funding is made possible by the financial contributions of thousands of community investors each year. UWATX is committed to serving as a strategic steward of these community dollars.
