Become a Volunteer


Give 5 is an innovative, free, community-based program designed for Tulsa area residents. The program matches participants with nonprofit organizations addressing our city's primary areas of need and helps reestablish purpose and meaning in retirement.

Members of the cohort meet once a week for five weeks to gain a better understanding of Tulsa's challenges and are introduced to a variety of nonprofits working to address these issues. 

An important goal of the experience is to help prospective volunteers realize what a significant impact they can make in our community through their gifts of time. Give 5 volunteers may be called to work directly with children and other individuals or provide a service like transportation or administrative support.

There are options available that work for a wide variety of schedules and interests, and they all make a difference.

Interested in becoming part of Give 5? Upcoming sessions in 2022 begin in March, July and September. Download the Give 5 Application here.
