United Way of Greater Houston

In January 2020, Rich and Nancy Kinder granted $1 million to United Way of Greater Houston to support the United Way’s ongoing work in the Greater Houston community. The grant created long-lasting, systemic change to help our most vulnerable neighbors achieve financial stability and a sustainable quality of life.

The Kinders’ 2020 donation to United Way of Greater Houston marked the establishment of its new “Luminary” leadership giving level. The grant was to be invested in the community through services such as basic needs assistance, job training and financial coaching, early childhood education, youth development services, and affordable health care.

2024 marked the fifth consecutive year for the Foundation to give a $1 million campaign gift at the Luminary Giving level.
