In the course of 100 years, things are bound to change, but no matter what happens – global pandemics, natural disasters, inequity across different groups – you can always count on community. Whether it’s the one you grew up in or you just got here yesterday. United Way is the community that will always be here – for those who need help, for those who find their place by helping others, for all of us.
Every action we take goes toward building opportunity and driving change in our community. And now, in a time where community is more important than ever, we invite you to be a part of ours.
United Way for Greater Austin brings our community together to break economic barriers and build opportunity for all.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Race impacts all of us. It’s the single biggest predictor of a person’s education, health, and income.
To advance United Way for Greater Austin’s mission to fight poverty, we must stand up for racial justice.
That’s why we commit to:
Looking back to understand how we’ve contributed to racial inequality
Changing unfair systems that prevent our community from reaching its full potential
Embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion as individuals, as an organization, and with our community
United, we can create a community where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Join the journey and Live United!
Success in life begins with a quality education. That’s why we ensure children get a strong start in life and are ready to succeed in Kindergarten and beyond.
A person’s zip code should not determine their access to quality healthcare. We connect people with affordable healthcare, healthy foods, and basic needs supports so everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
Families and individuals are facing financial obstacles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. We fight to ensure everyone in our community has the resources and opportunities they need to build a strong financial foundation.
Together with generous neighbors like you, here are some of the things we accomplished in the past year across the Central Texas region, including Travis and Williamson counties.
Driving Impact with Data
When we share what we know and what we’re learning, we provide our community with powerful tools. That’s why we gather, analyze, and share critical data about needs and trends here in Greater Austin.
