Community Investment and Impact

Victoria County United Way understands that donors really want to make a difference right here in Victoria and DeWitt counties. We want to help you do that.

Our experience tells us that the best way to help the most people is to focus on the underlying causes of our communities the most serious problems. In Victoria and DeWitt counties we’re focused on critical issues like helping individuals achieve their potential, helping families become stable and independent and improving people’s health.

It takes the whole community working together to reach our goals in these areas. So we bring together people from all across the community — people from government, business, faith groups, nonprofits and ordinary citizens. If it requires fundraising, going to City Hall, or just getting people to work together, that’s what we do.

Your United Way contribution goes to work bringing lasting change, right where you live. Because that’s what matters.

Your Victoria County United Way contribution is an investment in your community. It is the most effective way to improve lives through the organization’s 20 member agencies because most people served have more needs than one agency alone can address.

Your contribution helps more than one person or one charity, and it addresses more than a single issue. Your contribution helps fill a broad range of needs – all focusing on the underlying causes. By giving through the United Way, it is the easiest and best way to make a difference in your community.

Hundreds of United Way volunteers spend countless hours analyzing data; measuring results to determine the most effective programs to fund that address our community’s most pressing needs. Our volunteers work on your behalf to engage our communities non-profit, governmental and corporate entities to improve the way community services are delivered. Together, we realize results that no one can accomplish alone.

Your contribution makes a difference – by creating lasting changes in people’s lives by getting to the heart of the problems right here in our community.
