Give To Improve Lives

Why Give?

We are hard at work improving and transforming lives in Denton County, thanks to donations from people just like you. Our donors range from blue collar workers at a manufacturing plant to professors at our local universities to self-made business owners to teachers in our school districts and beyond. Every gift both large and small is meaningful and important.

Working together, we can accomplish things that no organization, no individual and no government can accomplish on its own. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.


We offer a resource distribution system that is accountable, caring, responsive, and creative. It is regarded by donors, the community, and partnering agencies as an effective and efficient means for allocating funds to provide the greatest impact on community needs and issues.



Cree logo Leadership Giving Circle

Leadership Givers are our most dedicated donors, generously giving an annual gift of $1,000 or more to United Way of Denton County. Each year, we recognize these caring individuals as leaders in our community, investing at the highest level in worthy programs and partner agencies dedicated to improving lives in Denton County.




Women and children with booksWomen UNITED is a caring group of community-minded women committed to giving their time, talents, and treasure to United Way of Denton County to provide individuals and families in Denton County the tools they need to become financially stable, help ensure children are ready to succeed in school, and offer opportunities for healthier lifestyles.



Alexis De Tocqueville Society

We are proud to recognize our local leaders in philanthropy with membership in the prestigious worldwide Alexis de Tocqueville Society. Members of the Tocqueville Society with United Way of Denton County make a total contribution of $10,000 or more, and direct at least 60% of that gift to United Way of Denton County and/or any of our collective impact initiatives.



Planned Giving

We enjoy the support of not only annual gifts, but Planned Gifts as well. Planned Giving is a method of raising dollars for nonprofit organizations with cash, equity or property. From across Denton County, people who have dedicated their legacies to making positive change have already chosen United Way of Denton County as a recipient of endowments, a beneficiary of their will or even the inheritor of private property such as stocks, bonds and real estate.





Corporate Partnership Opportunities

We offer Corporate Partnership packages ranging from $5,000 contribution to $100,000 contribution. We also offer event sponsorship packages and custom Sponsorship packages. 



Employee Giving Campaigns

The majority of our support comes from workplace campaigns. A business-to-business model with a long legacy of positive results through our 65+year history, workplace campaigns enable your employees to give easily via payroll deduction, donating as little or as much as they want from each paycheck. Since the donation is arranged just like federal income tax withholding, it's easier for donors to give generously.
