More than a fundraiser, United Way of Williamson County works locally to change lives and create pathways to a better life for all.
We galvanize our community around a common cause, a common vision and a common path forward. We leverage our assets (including relationships, workplace campaign, and communication strategies) to help each of our Williamson County communities be thriving places to live, work and play.
By focusing our efforts on the areas of education, income, and health, we bring diverse partners together to focus the community’s attention on needs in our community, enlisting everyone in the solution.
A good education is essential to getting a good job with health benefits. An income that can cover today’s needs and save for tomorrow strengthens the foundation of a family. Good health helps children succeed in school and adults at work. Remove any one building block, and the other two topple. Build them all up, and we have a strong foundation for success – for individuals, families and the entire community.
Here is a snapshot of our work:
- Funding local nonprofit programs that advance our community impact goals in the areas of education, income, and health.
- Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library helps economically disadvantaged preschoolers read by providing books in their home.
- www.mentorinwilco.org connects adults with students in local school districts waiting for an adult mentor.
- Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) free income tax preparation sites are helping hard-working families file their taxes accurately and at no cost.
United Way of Williamson County is a locally run chapter of the United Way Worldwide umbrella organization — serving residents from Taylor to Hutto, Georgetown, Round Rock, Jarrell and the 183 Corridor (including Cedar Park and Liberty Hill). Each United Way operates independently and is locally governed. A local, volunteer board of directors oversees our strategic direction and steers our financial decisions.
