Unite Forever Campaign

Benefitting the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Endowment—founded in 1994 with a generous gift from TXU Energy and managed by a separate 501c3—The Unite Forever Campaign seeks to provide United Way of Metropolitan Dallas with a sustainable flow of funding to achieve our goals.

We aim to raise $100 million to establish permanent funding for United Way of Metropolitan Dallas that will enable us to:


Withstand economic and annual fund fluctuations in the existing three-year grant process


Grow our ability to invest in strategic partnerships and creative advancement to allow for bold new ventures


Offer flexibility for nimble support of unforeseen needs
