About Us

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

Interrupting inequitable systems and patterns preventing our community from reaching its full potential

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

We are deeply resolved to elevate all voices and create a more equitable, inclusive community. Join the journey and Live United!
