This Giving Tuesday, you can make a real difference for local children and families.

Our Mission

United Way for Greater Austin brings people, ideas, and resources together to fight poverty in our community.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Race has a big impact on a person’s life outcomes, so we can only break the cycle of poverty by standing up for racial justice.

That’s why we commit to:

Acknowledging and reconciling our historical role in perpetuating systems of inequality

Changing inequitable systems that prevent our community from reaching its full potential

Embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion as individuals, as an organization, and with our community

We can create a more equitable, inclusive community together. Join the journey and Live United!
