United Way of Central Oklahoma is working towards a stronger, healthier and more compassionate community by supporting a network of 54 locally-focused Partner Agencies and 102 health and human service programs. Your contributions are used to surround our community’s most critical needs, address multiple issues and offer help and hope where it’s needed the most. By bringing people and organizations together around our Five Focus Areas, we impact thousands of lives.

We ensure our donors receive the maximum impact for their charitable investment, while maintaining the highest level of accountability. Each year, donor volunteers oversee the distribution of United Way dollars through an annual process called Community Investment. Approximately 200 volunteers not only donate monetarily but also donate their time to review funding requests from local programs hoping to receive United Way support. They carefully assess program proposals, financials, performance history, and outcome measurement data in order to recommend funding to our Board of Directors.


No act of kindness is too small. And to some, it means everything.

Through your gift to United Way, you have the opportunity to renew the truth that our neighbors around us deserve happier, healthier lives. Please contribute to our 2022 Give Campaign, and provide help and hope to thousands of children, adults and families in need in our community.
