About

Above all, we’re local.

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas strives to improve lives in Dallas, Collin, Rockwall and southern Denton counties. Since 1924, we’ve been helping North Texans. The money we raise here, stays here.

We treat 360 degrees of need.

Need isn’t caused by just one thing, so we don’t focus on a single solution. We fight it from every angle, treating immediate issues like hunger and homelessness, plus the long-term causes of need—poor health, lack of education and financial instability.

We do more than good. United, we do great.

We don’t just raise money. We step up. We join in. We partner with local nonprofits, companies, volunteers and community members to create lasting change. Together, we’re breaking the cycle of poverty for today, tomorrow and forever.
