Community Investments | Tulsa Area United Way

Each year, the Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW) engages the Tulsa community to determine the best investment of resources to its partner non-profit agencies.  Community volunteers play a vital role in this process.  Panel volunteers work on 8- to 10-member panels assigned to review 3 to 6 partner agencies and will make funding recommendations for the next calendar year.  Each panel is led by experienced co-chairs and facilitated by a Community Investments staff member.

Panel Volunteer Expectations:

  • Attend volunteer training
  • Read all agency application materials
  • Attend panel meetings
  • Attend site visits for agencies
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Share your questions, thoughts and insights!

Timeline:

  • January - Panel Volunteer Training (2 hours)
  • February - First Panel Meeting (3-4 hours)
  • March - Site Visits (approximately 1-1.5 hours per agency)
  • April - Final Panel Meeting (3-4 hours)
