About the United Way of Waco-McLennan County

One Life, A Thousand Lives

The true Impact of investing in United Way is investing in one child who has access to quality education, empowering one parent to build a financially secure future for their family, assuring one individual has access to quality health care.

One individual, annually and collectively, becomes thousands of individual lives and generations made stronger, self-sufficient and able to rise above the limitations of poverty and navigate through challenging life circumstances.

Each year, thousands of people come together to invest in United Way—one dollar, thousands of dollars leveraged to generate lasting impact.  This is the power behind invested impact.  It assures powerful local programs in Education, Financial Security, Health and Essential Services receive the funding they need to assist McLennan County residents.

Last year, over 41,000 families and individuals in McLennan County were served by United Way funded programs.

For nearly 90 years, United Way of Waco-McLennan County has focused on strengthening our community and creating opportunity for every citizen through inspired and informed philanthropy and partnerships to address our greatest challenges.  UWWMC works with the corporate, private and civic leaders to strengthen programs that support and empower children, families, and individuals.  Through the generous support of our donors and the strength of our non-profit partners, we are effectively building a strong foundation for our community’s future health and well-being.
