United Way of Galveston harnesses the power of community to connect those who can help with those who need help.

We have been working around the clock to help Galveston with Hurricane Beryl recovery.

We started before it was a named storm, and we are not even close to being finished with our work.

Here’s what we care about.

We want to see food on every table. A roof over every head. High-quality early-childhood education for every child. Living wages for every adult. We care about putting opportunity in the hands of all people in Galveston.

About our mission –>

We work along side you.

At United Way of Galveston, we partner with local charitable organizations to tackle the urgent and long-term problems facing our community. We have seen how neighborhoods rise together when we all step up for one another.

How we work for change


We seek the need

We are in constant communication with our Partner Agencies to understand where there is the greatest need and how we can best respond. This allows us to be nimble and effective in meeting the immediate and long-term needs of our community.


We make giving easy

Contributions to United Way of Galveston are carefully distributed to local charitable organizations when they are needed the most AND where they are needed the most. Whether you make a one-time donation or give through workplace giving, we make it easy for you to give to the causes you care about most.


We stay informed

We are connected with an extensive network of community partners and charitable organizations. We stay aware of their operations and emerging needs, especially when disaster strikes. This allows us to make wise decisions about partnerships and how to be a trusted source of information for donors.

We’re putting opportunity into the hands of all.

You can help us change the stories of individuals in Galveston who are in need. Join us to fight for their health, education, and financial stability. Together, we can make sure that every person in Galveston has opportunities to thrive.

United Way of Galveston is committed to building stronger communities by creating the opportunity for individuals and families to thrive through the creation and funding of programs to address the economic, educational, and assistance disparities caused by generations of systemic institutional racism and other barriers, and to do so in an equitable, reflective manner, regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, culture, age, physical ability, or lived experience.
