People Helping PeopleFounded 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 support services, healthcare, education initiatives 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.

Teacher Wishlist Giveaway
Our donation initiative for the third quarter of 2023
Educating youth is important for the growth of our community, and so are the teachers who help to foster this. United Heritage Charity Foundation believes in giving where you live, and that one of the best ways to make a change is to directly improve the lives of individuals. The focus for quarter three is Education. This year, the Charity Foundation hosted a giveaway for Texas teachers. Of those who submitted their Amazon wishlists, 80 were randomly selected to receive up to $250 worth of school supplies. In total, the Charity Foundation donated $20,000 to help reduce the cost of out-of-pocket- expenses for educators to use towards their classrooms!
