Together, more than 95,000 United Way of Metropolitan Dallas investors, volunteers, and advocates are creating change that lasts. Our goals are ambitious, but the remarkable progress we’ve made proves that anything is attainable when we unite.

In 2013 - 2014, United Way investments helped over 600,000 people change their lives by:

United Way staff provided services to our grantees resulting in an additional investment of $1.3M. These services include training, program development, metrics and measurement consultation, workshops, and strategy evaluation.

Our volunteer engagement programs mobilize 9,000 volunteers annually resulting in nearly $800,000 of donated services here in North Texas.

We’ve invested more than $3.5 Million in United Way initiatives that address critical gaps in education, income and health.

Your generosity allows us to invest in more than 160 local programs working together to change lives forever. These incredibly dynamic programs are as comprehensive as they are effective.
