About

Our Mission

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas strives to improve lives in Dallas, Collin, Rockwall and southern Denton counties. Since 1924, we’ve been a local organization helping North Texans. So the money raised here, stays here.

Our Focus

We address community issues in a holistic way by focusing on the building blocks of opportunity—education, income and health—that every person and community needs to thrive.

Our Approach

We do more than raise money. We step up. We join in. We set bold goals and measure progress to ensure we’re making the biggest impact possible. We identify gaps in existing local services and build new programs to fill them. We partner with local nonprofits, companies, volunteers and community members to create lasting change. Together, we’re solving our biggest problems for today, tomorrow and forever.
