“An investment in a better North Texas, where everyone has the access and opportunity to thrive, is just good business. And as Comerica prepares to celebrate its 175 anniversary in 2024, we recognize United Way’s Centennial as a significant milestone of service to North Texas.”
Curt Farmer
Chairman, President & CEO,
Comerica Incorporated & Comerica Bank
2023-24 United Way Campaign Chair 
“The reason we were motivated to make this lead investment is that United Way’s 100th anniversary isn’t a finish line but rather it is the halfway point toward an ambitious set of community goals. The Aspire United 2030 goals focus on education, income and health programs that have the potential to transform our community, and Trinity Industries is invested in making those goals a reality.”
