United Way of the Coastal Bend gives more than $2.5 million to local non-profits

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – More than 60 local non-profit organizations received a total of $2,553,433.10 for the 2021-2022 fiscal year thanks to United Way of the Coastal Bend.

The funds will be used by recipient organizations to support education, health and financial stability programs and initiatives throughout the Coastal Bend.

This latest round of funding follows actions taken by United Way of the Coastal Bend earlier this year to support area non-profits. In April, the organization’s Board of Directors voted to use surplus funds to provide more than $165,000 in additional funds to partner agencies who operate programs funded through the organization’s Community Investment Fund. A total of 29 non-profits received $1,000 to $15,000 in unrestricted funds to cover expenses.

"This last year has brought many unique challenges to our partner agencies and the communities we serve," said Libby Averyt, President & CEO of United Way of the Coastal Bend. "We are incredibly grateful for the generosity and support of our donors. It’s their support that has enabled us to continue to meet the needs of our Coastal Bend neighbors."
