LCRA Employees’ United Charities

Charitable foundation contributes to area nonprofit groups

LCRA is taking a new approach to its volunteer and giving efforts and will no longer serve as a business agent for LCRA Employees’ United Charities. In the coming months, LCRA will transition the administration of United Charities to the United Charities Board of Directors. For details, read General Manager Phil Wilson’s Oct. 2​2 email to United Charities members.

LCRA Employees' United Charities, organized more than 20 years ago by employees, has helped thousands of people in the Central Texas area and around the world. In those two decades United Charities chapters have contributed more than $6 million to more than 500 nonprofit organizations.

LCRA Employees' United Charities is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization whose mission is to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations within LCRA's service area.  Nonprofit organizations submit grant applications that are carefully reviewed by the employee committees to determine funding.​

It’s easy to apply for a grant.

Include with your grant application:

  • Letter from IRS confirming 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status
  • Summary of nonprofit’s need for funding
  • List of nonprofit’s board of directors
