United Way of Abilene will focus community resources to leverage services for positive impact on individuals, families and neighborhoods.
Sometimes that means raising funds. Sometimes that means bringing together different organizations to work toward a common goal. Always, it means improving lives right here in West Central Texas. This effort seeks to bring lasting change — not just a quick fix. It’s the difference between providing food and shelter for 100 homeless people, versus reducing the rate of homelessness by half over the next five years. You can help.

EMPLOYEE CAMPAIGNS

Employee campaigns bring people together to tackle issues in our community. Campaigns are tailored to fit the needs of each organization. United Way of Abilene staffers and volunteers will be hands-on with you to ensure success.

CORPORATE DONATIONS

A corporate investment or matching gift demonstrates your philanthropic leadership and commitment to the community. All levels of giving receive year round recognition at United Way events and in collateral material.

IN-KIND DONATIONS

In-kind donations can be custom tailored to your organization. Catering for a United Way event, hosting an event or providing other goods or services are just a few examples. We can develop an in-kind package to best suit your needs.

MEDIA PARTNERSHIPS

When you help us spread the United Way message a life can be changed and our community can be improved. Media partnerships strengthen and amplify our message.

Individuals are recruited each year from corporations and small businesses. Businesses "loan" their representatives to United Way on a part-time basis during the fall to assist other businesses with their United Way employee campaigns. They participate in team building and training programs during the summer in preparation for the campaign. The Loaned Executive Program benefits an organization by providing opportunities for individuals to meet people from every area of the community. They have the opportunity to develop relationships through the United Way campaign organization and within the companies they work with during the campaign. These contacts can be of great benefit to an organization in their business.
