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 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.
Since its inception, the Charity Foundation has distributed more than $2,224,315.60

Our donation partner for the fourth quarter of 2023

Heroes Night Out

United Heritage Credit Union and its Charity Foundation are proud to share that we are partnering with Heroes Night Out to support local military service members and their families. Ahead of the holiday, the organization, the local community, and United Heritage came together to help fulfill 28 families' wish lists for their children as a surprise on Christmas. Additionally, we donated gift cards to each family to purchase essential items during this season. United Heritage’s contributions totaled $12,000 towards Heroes Night Out’s Christmas initiative. The organization is 100% donation-based and relies on volunteers to help support their initiatives and events that provide resources and service to military families.

Encouraging the relationships between a parent/guardian and a child, whenever possible, is an important way to help families and individuals feel self-sufficient. Family Support Services help to address the general population and target specific groups to best serve local citizens.

Healthcare has been and will continue to be an important aspect of our culture. The Charity Foundation understands the impact that healthcare and medical research have on our communities.

With a belief that our children remain our single greatest resource, the United Heritage Charity Foundation is a strong supporter of education initiatives for young people. By giving today’s youth every opportunity for success, our communities will grow and prosper.

Animals & Pets

Animals are an important part of many households in our communities. The Charity Foundation supports local organizations that rescue and shelter animals as well as those that advocate for improved animal welfare and wildlife conservation.

Military & Veteran Support icon
Military & Veteran Assistance

The United Heritage Charity Foundation feels it is important to support our military and veterans in as many ways as possible to show our appreciation of their many sacrifices. This is also a nod to United Heritage Credit Union's history, as it originally started as a military credit union.

By prioritizing environmental initiatives within our community, the Charity Foundation strives to be a steward of the planet by promoting sustainable practices, advocating for environmental awareness to safeguard future generations, and fostering a healthier quality of life.
