Statewide Initiatives


United Ways of Texas (UWT) has been fortunate enough to work with several national foundations and other philanthropic groups who, through UWT, provide local United Ways and other community-based organizations around the state the opportunity to invest private dollars into a project or initiative that will meet one of the most pressing needs in their communities. United Ways of Texas, as part of the United Way system focuses the majority of its initiative work in three primary areas: Education, Income and Health, but recognizes the importance and urgency related to disaster response and crisis preparedness efforts statewide and thus engages in this type of initiative work as well. 

United Ways of Texas' main priority with its statewide initiative work is to support local United Ways with external resources that allow them to invest grant dollars, rather than community dollars, to find solutions to specific challenges. We'd like to invite our visitors to browse UWT's focus areas using the links to the left to learn more about the our statewide initiative work and its power to make Texas a better place to live and do business.
