Community Collaborations

Working Together to Build a Stronger Community

Many entrenched social problems in our community cannot be solved by a single organization. We all must work together to address those challenges, help our neighbors and build a stronger community.

The Tulsa Area United Way encourages partnerships among our partner agencies and considers investments in nonprofit collaborations that have a community-wide impact and meet the following criteria:

  • Response to a systemic community need that cannot be addressed adequately by a single nonprofit
  • Formal partnership of nonprofits, some of which are TAUW partner agencies
  • Supported by several community funders
  • Planned approach to serve a defined population with clear, measureable outcomes and a proposed timeline of accomplishments
  • Identified administrative structure for accountability
  • Budget for the full term of the project
