United Way Capital Area is a locally run chapter of the United Way of America umbrella organization. Each United Way operates independently and is locally governed. A volunteer Board of Directors oversees our strategic direction and steers our financial decisions. United Way Capital Area serves a 10 county area comprising of Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis, and Williamson counties.
We help and collaborate with hundreds of local nonprofit agencies, providing financial, volunteer and advocacy support, and we review these agencies each year to ensure they do the best possible work in the community. We also advocate for social issues, convene community leaders from across all sectors to solve local human services problems, provide volunteers for a myriad of local projects, study and address long-term solutions to emerging social challenges, and we raise funds through workplace campaigns and individual donors.
During the more than 80 years United Way Capital Area has been part of the Central Texas community, many thousands of individuals have contributed to United Way and volunteered their time and talents.
