DESIGNATION POLICY

In our fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in the Brazos Valley, United Way partners with more than 100 companies to raise funds to invest in programs creating measurable change throughout our community.  

Through a rigorous grant process every two years, local nonprofit organizations apply to join forces with United Way of the Brazos Valley to address specific areas of this combined fight. We call these organizations Partner Agencies. With our Partner Agencies, we create a network of nonprofits, independently operating yet fighting together to address our community’s biggest issues. Together, we believe we achieve greater impacts than working alone.  

For this reason, United Way of the Brazos Valley encourages support to our general Community Campaign fund which supports our network of Partner Agencies and only allows limited designation of funds.

Corporate donors giving $5,000 or more per year and individual donors giving $240 or more per year may designate up to 50% of the gift to a specific United Way funded partner that will be honored as “separate stream” designation and will be passed on to the United Way funded partner without any administrative cost. The designations will not be paid until the next Fiscal Year and Community Impact Grant cycle.
