United Way of Waco-McLennan County

Change Doesn't Happen Alone

For almost 100 years, United Way of Waco-McLennan County (UWWMC) has been focused on strengthening our community and creating opportunity for every citizen through inspired and informed philanthropy and partnerships to address our greatest challenges. We fight for the health, education, financial stability, and safety net services of every person in McLennan County. UWWMC works with 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. 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. To achieve our vision and mission, we commit to:
  • Partner with organizations, corporations, and individuals
  • Inspire others to give, advocate, and volunteer
  • Engage with members of our community from diverse sectors and backgrounds
