Welcome to United Way of South Texas

United Way saves the community thousands of dollars by consolidating fund raising efforts, providing a clear form of accountability, and investing in a diverse group of local non-profits. Every organization is looking to maximize its investments and time commitments. What better way than the United Way to reach this goal, giving through one agency to impact hundreds of thousands of residents, here at home.

By giving to the United Way of South Texas (serving Hidalgo and Starr Counties) you are “Making lasting changes right here where YOU LIVE, what matters”. The United Way of South Texas can help you plan and implement a campaign in your company.

100 % Of Your United Way gift remains in Hidalgo & Starr Counties.
United Way of South Texas funds over 100 programs through 21 Partner Agencies and six Community Impact Grant recipients. Through these programs, we are helping youth succeed, strengthening and supporting families, employment placement for the disabled, elderly assistance, transportation assistance, emergency shelter, CPR training, and many other critical services.
