Our Mission

Improving people’s lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities.

Our Values

INTEGRITY
We act with integrity that inspires the highest truth.

IMPACT
We make a positive difference and have a measurable impact of enduring consequence.

VOLUNTEERISM
We have impact and are significant through the spirit of volunteerism.

INCLUSIVENESS
We are strong only when we are inclusive.

COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP
We provide leadership for community building to be a catalyst for positive change.

Founded in 1961 by five community leaders, United Way of Williamson County began as a grassroots effort to respond to the growing needs local families faced. Fundraising evolved as a strategy to bring resources to support service programs. The first campaign raised $20,071 and funded five agencies—Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Red Cross, the forerunner to ARC and 4-H Clubs of Williamson County.

Today, United Way of Williamson County supports 48 programs through 32 partner agencies. United Way touches the senior citizen living next door, the single mother working at your favorite restaurant and the child with developmental delays whose parents need a helping hand. Your gifts also help people facing chronic illness or natural disasters.

United Way is uniquely positioned to pull together a diverse group of stakeholders and resources from businesses, government, education, nonprofits and individuals – we can mobilize around issues important to strengthening Williamson County to deliver more impact than individual agencies could achieve on their own.

Community support for United Way of Williamson County reflects the great compassion and generosity of our citizens. Through 180 corporate partners and thousands of caring individuals, last year’s campaign raised more than $4.3 million.

Today we respond as a community – united together – creating opportunities for a better life for all, and we continue to create positive change and engage more people.

We urge you to get involved and learn more about the work of our partners. We invite you to join us. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer.

That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
