We've made some exciting changes to our donation process!
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.

Breast Cancer Resource Center
The United Heritage Charity Foundation (UHCF) wrapped half the year with its quarter two donation partner, Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC). UHCF donates to organizations and other community-serving groups that align with its four Areas of Focus. Breast cancer affects many people, it can be daunting to understand and prepare for the journey. We are proud to support this organization, which works to ensure that everyone, regardless of social status feels empowered to gain the knowledge and the support they need. As BCRC’s Mission Sponsor for Art Bra Austin, UHCF contributed $25,000 to the May 13 event, which resulted in over $500,000 raised for BCRC. For more information, visit https://bcrc.org/.

United Heritage Credit Union's area of focus from October to December is military and veteran assistance, and during this time we have partnered with Honor Flight 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.

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.
Our donation partner for the first quarter of 2022.
In quarter one of 2022, the United Heritage Charity Foundation worked with Senior Access, a local organization that assists seniors over the age of 60 by providing transportation and essential services. Founded in 1993, Senior Access currently supports over 1,300 senior clients located in the Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto, East Austin, and Manor areas of Central Texas. The organization connects volunteer drivers with seniors to take them to doctor appointments, go grocery shopping, and other helpful services. Throughout January to March of 2022, both groups came together to share a cohesive message that is tied to human services and promotes elderly assistance. The Charity Foundation believes it is crucial to take care of those from earlier generations who now need assistance in their daily lives as they are our connection to the past.
