United Heritage Charity Foundation provides grant to underserved youth

The $25,000 grant supports education programs throughout Central Texas

AUSTIN, TEXAS (November 5, 2018) — United Heritage Charity Foundation is pleased to announce it is providing a $25,000 grant to the University of Texas Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE). This marks the third consecutive year the Charity Foundation has partnered with the DDCE to support programming for underserved Central Texas youth.

The DDCE is a national model for integrating diversity and community engagement into the core mission of a university. It works with a broad range of student, faculty, staff, and community constituents to help the University of Texas at Austin connect its intellectual resources to communities across Texas and offer education to those who may face the greatest challenges in accessing it.

The grant provided by the United Heritage Charity Foundation will enable the foundation to continue to support K-12 initiatives, such as the Neighborhood Longhorns Program and the University of Texas Charter School System; both of which work to foster a culture of academic success. The grant will also provide vital support to the Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence (LCAE), which empowers students to become innovative, productive and engaged global citizens.

May Lofgreen, Chairman of the Board of Directors states, “Our Foundation is delighted to support UT-DDCE for the third year in their endeavors to assist the underserved youth in Austin and Central Texas through their programs in charter schools as well as the UT Elementary School in East Austin.”

The United Heritage Charity Foundation gives special thanks to the DDCE for providing the opportunity to support their programs and have a positive impact on the success of the community. For more information about the United Heritage Charity Foundation, please visit
