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.

SAFE Austin
Our donation partner for the third quarter of 2022

SAFE Austin

This year, quarter 3 is focused on Education, Family & Children, with the belief that our children remain our greatest resource. The United Heritage Charity Foundation is partnering with The SAFE (Stop Abuse For Everyone) Alliance. As a long-standing and respected human services agency in Austin, SAFE Alliance was formed in 2015 as a merger between Austin Children's Shelter and SafePlace. The SAFE Alliance exists to stop abuse for everyone by serving the survivors and helping to create a safe community through advocacy, education and prevention resources. During the months of July through September, the Charity Foundation will help them as they continue to provide free services to combat violence and abuse in the community.
