Request Funding

Program Funding

United Way of Norman is a leader in community impact. We strategically invest funds to meet basic needs and tackle the root of community issues. Our funding strategy focuses on long-term goals, such as reducing the risky behavior of children, increasing the economic stability of families and improving the health and safety of children and adults in our community.

The Request For Proposal (RFP) Process allows qualified non-profit organizations to submit program proposals aligned with United Way of Norman's Community Impact Goals. It is a competitive grant review process. Collaboration and creativity are encouraged. Funded programs will be required to measure prescribed outcomes and report them to United Way and the community.

Letter of Intent

All organizations seeking funding from United Way of Norman for FY2022 must complete a Letter of Intent application. The LOI will determine if an organization is eligible to complete the more comprehensive Request For Proposal application in February 2021.
