For the 2019–2020 fiscal year, United Way of Tarrant County allocated more than $10 million in funding to partners in the community, including almost $5 million allocated to address social issues identified in the organization’s recent Community Assessment: basic needs and financial stability; education/workforce; mental, emotional and physical health; affordable housing/homelessness; and transportation.
Community, corporate, government and foundation donations to United Way of Tarrant County make it possible for the organization to invest resources toward our community’s most pressing issues.
Community investments include $6 million in donor-designated gifts; $2.2 million for Safety Net programs, which constitute a network of services offered to the community through the United Way of Tarrant County’s system of partners; and $1.16 million for Scalable Community Change, which includes programs targeted at communities rather than individuals. Investments also include more than $355,00 for System’s Change funding, which focuses on the root causes of issues, more than $370,000 in funding through the Veterans Fund, which supports military service members and their families, and more than $48,000 to Women United programs, which are focused on women and girls. Each initiative works to address distinct needs in the community.
