Community Investment Grants

Funding Local Community Partners

United Way for Greater Austin fights poverty in our community, and we know we are not in this fight alone. By partnering with key community leaders and stakeholders, we identify proven strategies and work toward a common goal. These efforts are backed up with Community Investment Grants (CIGs) to amplify our collective impact.

We invest millions of dollars in two strategic areas every year.

Success By 6

Investments in early childhood development, aligned with the goals detailed in the Success By 6 Strategic Plan


2-Gen Approaches

Investments in programs that serve parents and children simultaneously, aligned with the goals detailed in the 2-Gen Strategic Plan

Our Community Investment Grants are made possible by the donations of thousands of community investors each year. United Way for Greater Austin is committed to serving as a strategic steward of these community dollars.
