The Mission of the United Way of South Central Oklahoma is to improve lives and enhance the community by mobilizing the caring power of the people of Southern Oklahoma.

What we do:
United Ways Worldwide strive to improve health, education and financial stability, the building blocks of positive long-lasting change – through proven and innovative services and programs, both across the world and right here in our own back yards. We are most fortunate to live and work in a place where neighbors believe in helping neighbors. This is evidence that we are all working hard to care for children, parents, grandparents and entire communities.

The United Way of South Central Oklahoma is an organized effort by local volunteers who conduct an annual fund-raising drive, with the proceeds being distributed to our 34 area partner agencies that provide various social, humanitarian and emergency needs for those in the counties of Carter, Johnston, Love, Marshall and Murray.

Who we are:
We have a five member Executive Committee of: Drive Chair, Drive Chair Elect, Vice President, President and Treasurer. Our Allocation Committee is made up of ten business professionals from the community and includes the five voting members of the Executive Committee. Our Board of Directors is made up of fifteen individuals. Most all have full time jobs and donate their time and energy, to make this alliance possible and this organization strong and healthy.

We respect the diversity of people in our communities. We invite you to contact us regarding volunteer opportunities.
