Celebrating our inaugural Luminaries

The Kinders' extraordinary gift will fuel community impact

Thank you to Nancy and Rich Kinder, whose $1 million gift to United Way of Greater Houston will create opportunities for so many in our community to thrive. 

The Kinders’ contribution supports United Way’s ongoing work to create long-lasting, systemic change that helps our most vulnerable neighbors achieve financial stability and a sustainable quality of life. With 40 percent of families in our area struggling just to make ends meet, the Kinders were inspired to bolster their support of United Way. They hope their gift will in turn inspire other Houston-area families to follow suit. 

“United Way anticipates that the role of the individual donor will be increasingly important in the decades ahead, and Rich and I agree,” says Nancy Kinder, CEO of the Kinder Foundation. “We support the strategic plan of the organization.”

The Kinders’ gift marks the launch of United Way’s Luminary group, comprising individuals and families whose annual investment of $1 million or more lights the path to a better future for those struggling to improve their lives.
