We invest in Nonprofit Programs improving lives every day.
TAUW works alongside individuals and organizations from across the community who bring the passion, expertise, and resources needed to accomplish our mission and we are inviting you to join us.
To make a lasting impact in the Tulsa area and surrounding communities, we utilize a network of donors, companies, and partner nonprofits.
By investing in three pillars of a better quality of life: health/safety, education, and financial stability, we contribute to advancing the common good.

More About TAUW
Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW) unites people and resources to improve lives and strengthen our communities. To do this, TAUW — with thousands of individual donors and companies — raises more than $25 million each year to support innovation grants, collaborative initiatives, shared technology services, and human services organizations. This means 160+ programs within Tulsa, Creek, Rogers, Okmulgee, Osage, and Wagoner counties empower a community working together to ensure that all of its members flourish and thrive. During TAUW’s annual Day of Caring events, more than 6,300 volunteers provide direct service to area schools and nonprofits.
In June 2023, TAUW took over operations of 211 Eastern Oklahoma, which offers 24/7 free service available to citizens of Eastern Oklahoma through a direct phone call, live chat, text message or online search across 37 counties.
TAUW invests in these key action areas that we believe are a foundation to successful living:
EDUCATION – TAUW supports lifelong learning in our community from our youngest to our oldest citizens through the provision of educational information, training, and counseling.
FINANCIAL STABILITY – Through our annual fundraising drive, thousands of Tulsa area residents have obtained employment, pulled themselves out of debt, and have been able to provide for their families.
HEALTH AND SAFETY -Many of our nonprofit partners offer information, training and/or counseling to help Tulsa area residents live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.
