Community Investments Manager


The Community Investments Manager serves on the Community Investments team and assumes administrative responsibility and management of a portfolio of annual TAUW investments. Community Investments includes three funding streams: 1) Sustainability, the largest area of support, for 59 partner nonprofits serving education, financial stability and health/safety needs; 2) Community Collaborations, funding annual partnerships across nonprofits and municipalities to address entrenched social problems; and 3) Social Innovations, an annual competitive pitch opportunity for nonprofits to receive start-up support to address community challenges.

The Manager’s portfolio will include approximately one-third of the current 59 partner nonprofits funded through TAUW’s Sustainability process. In coordination with the Community Investments team, the Manager helps facilitate the annual investment process for partner nonprofits, working with dozens of community volunteers to steward the annual review of need across a six-county service area. The Manager actively serves as primary relationship manager with volunteers serving in their investment portfolio, both retaining and recruiting new volunteers who are representative of diverse populations to steward TAUW investments. In addition to a portion of the Sustainability portfolio, the Manager administers the Community Collaborations and Social Innovations funding streams. Finally, this position administers Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) grants for Creek, Tulsa and Wagoner Counties.


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 59 human services organizations. This means 145 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.

TAUW invests in these three building blocks for better lives:


TAUW supports lifelong learning in our community from our youngest to our oldest citizens through the provision of educational information, training, and counseling.


Thanks to supporters like you, thousands of Tulsa area residents have obtained employment, pulled themselves out of debt, and have been able to provide for their families.


Many of our partner agencies offer information, training and/or counseling to help Tulsa area residents live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.
