How Does United Way of Abilene Mind the Gap?

Since 1956, our work reflects the evolving needs of our community. With strategic program investments and collaborations, we address long-term solutions to Mind the Gap.

With your help, we can create a lasting impact by

  • developing youth to their full potential,
  • strengthening families,
  • providing access to vital health services,
  • sustaining senior independence, and
  • helping our neighbors through a crisis.

 Now more than ever we need to come together, united we can make the difference.

Loaned Executives

Individuals are recruited each year from corporations and small businesses. Businesses “loan” their representatives to United Way on a part-time basis during the fall to assist other businesses with their United Way employee campaigns. They participate in team-building and training programs during the summer in preparation for the campaign. The Loaned Executive Program benefits an organization by providing opportunities for individuals to meet people from every area of the community. They have the opportunity to develop relationships through the United Way campaign organization and within the companies they work with during the campaign. These contacts can be of great benefit to an organization in their business
