Why Should You Participate?

Involvement in the Day of Caring develops teamwork and build morale among employees while they give back to the community.

After participating in the Day of Caring, the Tulsa Area United Way becomes more than a logo, pledge card or campaign rally, it becomes the means by which an individual can assist many people through one gift.

Day of Caring helps present the true face of people in need and the 59 partner agencies that serve them. On this special day, volunteers complete projects submitted by partner agencies. Everyone gets a hand-on opportunity to see how their TAUW contributions help our community each and every day.

There are hundreds of projects available, so you can be sure you'll find one to fit your interests and skill sets.

Organizations who classify as 501c3s are eligible, and projects range from construction to community interaction. Be a part of the change in this community.
