For decades, we've focused on programs that improve the lives of those around us - but we could not do what we do without your help.  When you donate to United Way Galveston County Mainland, you're improving the lives of individuals and families in our community. We make sure every dollar that you invest is allocated to those who are in need.

How It Works

We improve lives by investing your dollars in the work of health and human service agencies that share our goals.  Your investment makes you an investor in a coordinated, community-wide effort that creates lasting community changes. Any investment that is made, is leveraged and combined with others then strategically invested in results-driven programs and initiatives.

It takes coordination and an entire network of programs to keep our communities united - and that's what United Way Galveston County Mainland provides.  An investment in the work of United Way allows you to tackle multiple social issues with one single contribution and ensures that a strong network of programs is available to help many people in need.


We are looking for steadfast leaders to volunteer that is committed to treating 360 degrees of need.  Whether you donate your time, resources, efforts, or expertise, you're making an investment in the community.  Together, we can lift up those in need and create hope for a better tomorrow. We do not wait for the problems to land in our lap. Instead, we dig for the challenges that need us most.

United Way Galveston County Mainland can connect you with various volunteer opportunities through our Partner Agencies.  Whether you want to volunteer for a special event, mentor a child in need, donate to a partner agency, or simply help an agency with landscaping or maintenance, we will find the perfect match for you!
