In January 2022, United Way for Greater Austin and United Way of Williamson County joined forces and merged. So much good has happened since then in our Greater Austin region. In the last year, United, we were able to make an even bigger impact for and with our neighbors in Williamson County.
Here are just a few things we accomplished in our first year as a newly merged organization.
United, we awarded 36 grants to Williamson County nonprofits
Thanks to the generous donations of thousands of community investors, we awarded $2.2 million to 68 local organizations, including 36 grants to Williamson County organizations focusing on education, health, and financial stability. We also celebrated with our partners at our first Nonprofit Partner Celebration!
United, we launched new initiatives in Williamson County
We launched several new initiatives in Williamson County, including:
- The Williamson County Success By 6 Coalition, to ensure all children in Williamson County enter Kindergarten happy, healthy, and prepared to succeed in school and beyond
- Pre-K Partnerships, to expand access to high-quality pre-K and provide centers with resources to help improve and sustain quality services for children in Round Rock ISD
- Addressing Cancer Together, to save lives and reduce the economic burden of cancer on families and communities in Greater Austin
- Community Health Connect, to improve health outcomes and expand access to resources for local families
United, we served our community by volunteering
We mobilized hundreds of volunteers to come together and serve the community at various locations in Williamson County for Summer Day of Caring, Fall Day of Caring, and MLK Jr. Service Week.
We’re looking forward to even more wins in Williamson County and across our Greater Austin region in 2023! Want to make a difference and help us achieve more wins for children, families, and individuals in our community this year? Please consider making a donation today.
