Founded in 1923, United Way of Central Oklahoma is creating lasting changes in people's lives throughout central Oklahoma. No longer just a fundraising organization, today United Way is on the front lines of some of our community's most pressing problems. While providing critical funding to results-oriented programs at proven non-profit agencies will always be central to our work, increasingly we find ourselves called upon to address needs even more directly. From helping to write our community's disaster response plan, to addressing the startling number of high school dropouts, United Way is engaged and actively seeking solutions to some of our most challenging issues. We harness the power of 50,000 local donors, thousands of volunteers, corporate and government partners, and outstanding non-profit Partner Agencies to impact the lives of more than 800,000 central Oklahomans.
