To Break the Cycle of Poverty

United Way for Greater Austin is breaking the cycle of poverty in our community. All of our strategic, evidence-based work- from leading community coalitions, to funding nonprofit partners, to running proven programs- is aligned to achieve this singular goal.

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!
