|United Way Galveston County Mainland fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our communities.
UWGCM raises funds each year with the help of industrial support, local business, families and individual people. These funds are used to support programs at local nonprofits as well as to provide direct community services, such as VITA. Our fundraising is extremely efficient, with only 8.3% used for administrative costs. This is obviously well within the guidelines from the Better Business Bureau, which requires that fundraising costs must not account for more than 35% of a non-profit agency's budget.
UWGCM is actively involved in coordinating health and human services to provide maximum impact to Galveston County. We regularly conduct research to determine the greatest needs in our area and we ensure that local services are available to meet those needs.
