United Way of Central Texas holds an annual community wide campaign to raise funds to support our 27 partner agencies that in turn provide services to the citizens of the community. The campaign is led by a group of highly motivated individuals we refer to as our Campaign Cabinet. United Way encourages all businesses and organizations to get involved in United Way by running their own employee campaigns.
The goal each year during the campaign is 100% Exposure! United Way wants each person to have the opportunity to hear the United Way story, and then be given the chance to make a commitment in a pledge to United Way. Pledge donations are accepted through payroll deduction or by a one-time donation of cash or check. We also accept donations online.
United Way of Central Texas kicks off its campaign each year after the annual Day of Caring. On this day hundreds of volunteers from local businesses and organizations spend their day helping out at one of the 27 United Way partner agencies as well as individuals that express a great need for assistance. It is a great way for the community to witness the hard work and determination of each agency, and to see first-hand the people they touch each day.
Companies that choose to participate with United Way are asked to name a campaign coordinator who is responsible for conducting the campaign and serves as the liaison between United Way and their place of business.
If you are interested in running a campaign at your place of business, please call our office at 254-778-8616 to find out more information. And if you are not employed at a company that runs a United Way campaign, please donate as an individual!
