For the 2018–2019 fiscal year, United Way of Tarrant County allocated more than $13 million in funding to partners in the community, including almost $1 million for our new Systems Change funding model, which is part of the organization’s new strategic plan.
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 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 $3.7 million for Scalable Community Change, which includes programs targeted at communities rather than individuals. This is in addition to the previously mentioned $969,996 in Systems Change funding. Women United and Veterans Fund dollars invest another $382,295 in programs impacting those populations, bringing the total to more than $13 million. Each initiative works to address distinct needs in the community.
