People Helping People

Founded in 2003, the United Heritage Charity Foundation was developed as a 501(c)(3) to support projects and organizations within local communities. Benefiting local charities, including organizations focused on family and children, healthcare, education initiatives, human services as well as military and veteran assistance efforts, the Charity Foundation's top priority is contributing to deserving organizations that positively impact Central and East Texas to make a difference in people’s lives. United Heritage Charity Foundation epitomizes the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People," which is why each year we work with organizations who are striving to make our communities a better place to live, work and attend school.
Since its inception, the Charity Foundation has distributed more than $2,088,148.00
We've made some exciting changes to our donation process!

Donation Partnerships

In order to ensure our support has the best impact possible on our communities, the Charity Foundation has shifted our donation process to allow for at least four (4) annual donations to organizations with which we’re able to partner. This allows us to work side-by-side with organizations and provides an opportunity to tell more of the story behind each organization. We look forward to these new partnerships.

We’ll still continue to evaluate Donation Requests as possible partnerships or for smaller distributions based on our overall budget.

NAMI Central Texas

This year, quarter two is focused on healthcare and the tie that mental health has to this area of focus. The United Heritage Charity Foundation is partnering with NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) Central Texas because of its mission to improve the lives of all individuals in its local area through education, support, and advocacy programs. NAMI Central Texas's vision is to address mental illness as a health issue and provide systems and resources for those to achieve recovery. Founded in 1984, this organization supports communities in Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop, Burnet, and Caldwell counties. During the months of April to June, the Charity Foundation will help them as they assist individuals and families who are impacted in Central Texas, and as they continue to make a difference in the way people see mental health.
