    During our 90th, we publicly launched  Unite Forever, our first ever endowment campaign. With the successful execution of this event series and the momentum from this anniversary platform, we successfully closed our 10-year, $100 million campaign over goal and 3 years ahead of schedule.
    United Way of Metropolitan Dallas has time and again brought together change makers to improve our city for the better. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: If United Way of Metropolitan Dallas did not exist, we would have to create it.”

    Former Mayor, City of Dallas
    I think United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is quite unique because they make sure that the money that we raise is invested in places that can really make a difference.”

    At AT&T we are a company with a long and proud heritage of giving back to our communities. One thing we love about United Way is they have reengineered the giving business. They have vetted causes around the city. That when our employees give, they know it is going to organizations that are making a difference in the community”
