The United Way of Oxford-Lafayette County (UWOLC) is proud to partner with the Lafayette County School District (LCSD) in order to improve lives and meet needs throughout the Lafayette-Oxford-University (LOU) community. The funds raised by LCSD will support local programs and organizations such as The Leap Frog Program, Boys & Girls Clubs of North Mississippi, Lafayette County Literacy Council, Lovepacks, and Family Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi among many others.

The funds raised through LCSD’s campaign help the UWOLC advance its mission to improve lives and meet community needs by uniting people and resources. All award decisions are made by local volunteers from our community who review and approve the applications we receive on an annual basis. The process ensures accountability as applicants must demonstrate the positive outcomes of their programs and the severity of the needs being addressed in one or more of the UWOLC’s four focus areas of health, education, financial stability, and basic needs.
Through its program partners and community coalition work, our local United Way touches every age group and demographic in our community. The UWOLC is involved with everything from the LOU Reads Coalition, which seeks to ensure all children in our community can read to grade level by the end of the third grade, to the Meals on Wheels program in Lafayette County, which provides a nutritious meal, friendly visit, and safety check for numerous elderly residents.
Even if someone only has a dollar to give, the UWOLC provides the means to support several outstanding organizations and causes with a single donation. Every contribution is an investment in the LOU community as the UWOLC partners with individuals, nonprofits, businesses, and public entities to make a significant impact throughout Oxford and Lafayette County.
Thank you to our amazing friends at LCSD for your tremendous partnership and all you do to make our community a better place. It is a privilege to work hand in hand with you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others and every dollar makes a difference when you invest in the LOU community.
