To unite and strengthen our community by empowering each person to change lives
A community working together to make life better for everyone
What We Do
Raising money for programs addressing issues in Education, Health, Income and Independence is a foundational responsibility for United Way of Norman.
- We convene community leaders to assess the needs of the Norman area.
- We invite local nonprofits to apply for grants to fund specific programs.
- The same community leaders recommend to the Board of Directors allocation of funds for the specific programs the agencies provide.
- If there are gaps between community needs and agency response, the United Way of Norman manages initiatives to address the needs.
United Way of Norman funds 40 programs at 28 organizations in the Norman area. The United Way also provides services to the community through programs like Success By 6, Teen Advisors of Norman, FamilyWize discount drug cards and the ABC School Supply Program
