United Way of Denton County is a locally-governed, autonomous, 501(c)(3) organization that has been efficiently mobilizing resources to advance the common good in our community since its founding in 1951. United Way of Denton County is dedicated to improving lives in Denton County. To accomplish this mission, we focus our efforts on three distinct areas: Education, Income, and Health. We collaborate with twenty partner agencies to effect positive change in our community. Beyond traditional collaborations with other non-profits, United Way of Denton County partners with all levels of government and runs programs of our own designed to positively impact our community. Ongoing Community Needs Assessment efforts help to align community investments towards critical areas of need throughout Denton County.
