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:
Must be a catalyst for change and focused on a community wide issue requiring a multi-faceted solution.
Must be a formal, documented alliance of various agencies; at least one of which a TAUW partner agency.
Must have a strategic plan with agreed upon outcomes.
Must have a system in place for the transferring and sharing of information/data with frequent planning meetings.
Must have other community funders.
