Official Board Statement Regarding Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is not now and has never been, a partner of United Way of Williamson County. The organization is not a beneficiary of any of our funding decisions or strategic initiatives. 

No donations collected for our Community Impact Fund or allocated to agencies providing services in Williamson County have funded Planned Parenthood. Our Community Impact Grants do not fund them in any way and we have no relationship with the organization.  

Because United Way of Williamson County relies primarily on workplace campaigns to generate funding to power our work, we provide options for people to give through payroll deduction. Like most United Ways, we allow donors to designate or write-in organizations and causes important to them. We honor those designations as long as organizations are registered 501 (c) 3 nonprofits in good standing with the IRS, and comply with all Patriot Act regulations. 

United Way of Williamson County is a locally-based community organization focused on improving lives and strengthening Williamson County. We respect our diverse community and the individuals who freely give to the causes important to them.
