Grant Funded Programs

We're Invested in Programs that Change Lives

United Way of the Coastal Bend works to advance the common good in our community. As a donor, you can rest assured that the local nonprofit organizations receiving your investment are being carefully monitored in the areas of quality programming, governance, finance and administration.

To create lasting change, community investments are made with great care. We invest in programs that align with our strategic goals in education, health and financial stability. To ensure fairness and transparency, grants given to funded partners are decided by panels of donor volunteers, then are voted on by our board of directors
