Live to Give Volunteer Program

At OU Medicine, we are dedicated to the community we serve.  In addition to providing high-quality healthcare, our physicians and staff give their time to help make Oklahoma a better place. Through our Live to Give program, OU Medicine volunteers have given a boost to numerous charitable causes and made a positive difference throughout the community.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities


 Getting involved in Live to Give events

Taking part in Live to Give is easy, fun and personally rewarding. Each quarter, OU Medicine organizes an official volunteer activity for employees and registers volunteers.  After slots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, an OU Medicine team of volunteers is dispatched to help a worthy cause in the community.  

Volunteering for non-OU Medicine events

Live to Give members can also donate their time to worthy causes outside of the official monthly events.  To have those volunteer efforts considered for recognition, employees can provide the program coordinator with written documentation of their participation in the form of signed letter from the appropriate non-profit organization.

To address possible volunteer activity during the work day, OU Physicians and the OU College of Medicine have adopted a policy providing employees with compensated time off with permission from the appropriate supervision.
