Volunteers are a crucial part of our mission to improve the health, safety, education and economic well-being of families in need. Dedicated volunteers provide thousands of hours of service to United Way of Central Oklahoma, our Partner Agencies and other local nonprofits to create lasting change in the community.
BECOME A COMMUNITY INVESTMENT VOLUNTEER
Each year we invite donors to help determine how United Way dollars are invested. Through the process we call Community Investment, these donor volunteers lead the review of funding requests, program outcomes, financial data, and past performances from Partner Agencies and new agencies seeking partnership, and make funding recommendations to the Board of Directors.

ON-SITE SERVICE PROJECTS
Can't leave the office but still want to volunteer? Create a volunteer project in the office. Many of our community partners do not have sufficient funds to purchase crucial material goods needed for their clients. Community and corporate volunteers can collect donations or purchase goods to assemble supply kits as an inspiring team-building activity, while bringing tangible comfort and encouragement to those in need.
