When you give, you help improve the health, education and financial stability for every person in every community in Payne County. More than 73,000 residents are impacted by United Way agencies each year, and the need continues to rise.

We invest donated dollars in nonprofits that focus on: Promoting Education, Improving Health & Safety and Reducing Poverty.
