At United Way of Galveston, our fundraising efforts are not just for ourselves, but also on behalf of the entire island community. Of the dollars that are entrusted to us from individual donors, companies and foundation grants, we allocate funding across our primary impact areas of health, education and financial stability. On top of the allocations to our Partner Agencies, United Way of Galveston also allocates additional funding to support our nonprofit partners with management and marketing resources.
Maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of donations to United Way of Galveston is at the heart of what we do. We make a big impact with a small staff, ensuring that the donations we receive are invested directly into our community and not spent on unnecessary overhead costs. We keep our management and fundraising costs low, under 5%, to ensure that your donations are maximized, but rest assured that 100% of designations are paid in full with no administrative charge. Great things happen when we LIVE UNITED!
