Who We Are
Our local United Way team includes our amazing donors, partners, volunteers, and advocates who selflessly give of themselves for the betterment of Oxford and Lafayette County.
Since its inception, the United Way of Oxford-Lafayette County has promoted the wellbeing of the Lafayette-Oxford-University (LOU) community through giving, volunteerism, and advocacy. Originally incorporated as the United Fund in 1970, the UWOLC joined the United Way network in 1975 and has served as a unifying force by bringing individuals, organizations, businesses, and public entities together to make a meaningful difference.
The UWOLC has raised and invested millions of dollars in the LOU community by supporting dozens of organizations that work hand in hand to meet the needs of Lafayette County residents. The UWOLC has also developed and coordinated community coalitions to prevent as well as respond to substantial issues throughout Oxford and Lafayette County. By promoting giving, advocacy, and volunteerism through its many partnerships, the UWOLC makes a significant impact in the lives of local residents on a daily basis.
