In response to the violent act at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County has created the “United with Uvalde” fund. There are no words for the loss that the victims’ families and the entire community feel right now.
As of June 20, we have collectively raised $1,107,167.25.
When a tragedy like this happens, it is imperative that we show those affected that they are not alone. They should not have to navigate these unimaginable circumstances by themselves. “United with Uvalde” aims to help with mental health support in the coming weeks and months as the community tries to heal.
We are using a portion of the MacKenzie Scott Transformational Gift that we received in 2020 to create this fund. We call on all corporations and individuals who are searching for a way to help to join our efforts to support Uvalde. If you want to help but aren’t sure what to do, donating to this fund will directly aid the community affected by this horrific event.
Money from the “United with Uvalde” fund will be used to support immediate and long-term mental health services. The funds will also address any emerging needs that develop in the future. 100% of the fund will support the students, teachers and families in Uvalde. Funds will be made available to nonprofit organizations with experience and expertise in providing direct mental health services for communities impacted by trauma.
Please join us as we stand united with Uvalde in this time of immeasurable loss.

100% of all UNITED WITH UVALDE funds will be used to support nonprofit partners providing mental health support services to the children, families and teachers impacted by this horrific tragedy.
We will be fully transparent about the UNITED WITH UVALDE fund and how it is used. We will be publishing lists of grant recipients and amounts received. This information will be available on our social media channels, website and in our monthly newsletter.
The fund will be disbursed in the form of a grant to selected nonprofit partners providing mental health support services to the Uvalde community. Funds will not be disbursed to individuals and families directly.
Nonprofit organizations will be able to submit proposals for their services to United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. After volunteer review and selection, funds will be awarded to nonprofit partner’s programs providing support to those affected in Uvalde.
