The time you give to individuals and non-profits can make a huge impact in our community.

Whether you have one hour or one day, we have a variety of ways for you to volunteer. Volunteer opportunities span United Way of Payne County's areas of focus and impact: health, education, financial stability, and life enhancing. What are you passionate about? How do you want to make a difference? No matter the amount of time, your volunteerism is supporting your neighbors and improving Payne County.
