Lubbock Area United Way - Our Work


Our Work

Since 1946, Lubbock Area United Way has raised over 114 million dollars to change lives and advance the common good. 

However, Lubbock Area United Way is more than a fundraising vehicle.  We work with 23 Community Partners to address needs and remove barriers. 

Through the research we do in our Community Status Report, we know that the lack of education leads to a variety of issues that are interconnected.  We have developed the Education Matters Initiative to address the root causes of these issues and empower individuals and families to take charge of the quality of their lives.

We also have committees of community volunteers who review the progrms we fund each year to ensure their continued success and effectiveness. If you are interested in serving on a Community Impact committee, please contact Janis Putteet, jputteet@unitedway-lubbock.org or 747-2711.
