A Tradition of Giving

Since our founding in 1924, Tulsa Area United Way has raised and invested over $825 million to assist our most vulnerable citizens living in Creek, Okmulgee, Osage, Rogers, Wagoner, and Tulsa counties. 

In the beginning, we were known as the Tulsa Community Fund. Eleven health and human service organizations established our fund. Together, after only five days, our communities exceeded their first goal of $238,895 by $9,000.   

Today, six of the original 11 agencies remain our partners.  

During World War II, we became the Tulsa War Chest. The Tulsa War Chest raised funds for 22 local programs and 22 organizations for international relief in partnership with the National War Fund and the United War Chest of Oklahoma. 

After the war, we changed our name to Tulsa Community Chest to reflect our broad mission. Then, in 1974, we officially became the Tulsa Area United Way.   
 
As we did in 1924, we continue to unite people and resources to improve lives and strengthen our communities by strengthening the three building blocks to a better life: education, financial stability, and health and safety.
