The Tulsa area has earned a national reputation as a place where foundations, corporations, and non-profit organizations come together to find solutions to the most challenging social issues.
When we work together, we achieve results.
Using the collective impact model, the Tulsa Area United Way’s community collaborations initiative fosters cooperation among local non-profit organizations (including non-partner nonprofits), business and industry, foundations, and government and educational institutions.
We believe these collaborations are the most effective means for addressing certain issues. One organization rarely has the capacity to adequately address a community-wide issue on its own. Additionally, cooperation promotes effective solutions for those in need and raises the efficiency of agencies that provide services.
