TAUW Day of Caring

Day of Caring quarterly events to promote community involvement through coordinated drives and individual projects. 


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.
