Did you hear Alison Anthony of TAUW on Talk Radio 1170? Our President and CEO spoke on the Pat Campbell Show about the needs people are facing during the pandemic and why it’s important for the community to come together and help.  

Here’s How TAUW Responded to the Pandemic

We united people and resources to improve lives and strengthen our communities during COVID.  We did this by investing in financial stability, education, health and safety.

We surpassed a goal of $23.7 million and also invested a half million in TAUW reserves back into the community. However, despite the hardships, we also had a positive opportunity to live our values and demonstrate the power of living united as a community:

In 2020, TAUW partnered with TCF to raise more than $3.6 million for first dollars out into the community. TAUW created and managed the virtual application process and participates on the distribution committee.

Our IT/NTECH team supported ge0-mapping efforts with Goodwill, Opportunity Project, and Hunger Free Oklahoma to help people access the needed services through an online map tool. Additionally, our NTECH team supported many of our partner agencies in pivoting to virtual/remote workplaces and service delivery: 16 agencies supported with remote access and infrastructure capabilities; 55 organizations participated in training for video conferencing and cybersecurity in a remote work environment.

TAUW’s marketing team created digital campaign toolkits and multiple videos to tell the story of community need to primarily remote workplace campaigns. We provided virtual agency tours and other high-quality programming, including showing the Resilience Film about Adverse Childhood Experiences to more than a thousand viewers.

We supported the County CARES Act Funding process, hosting Food and Housing Summits.

We supported Partner Agencies in PPP loan application and forgiveness guidance; 49 TAUW nonprofit agencies received more than $18 million in PPP loans in 2020 to keep their teams employed during a time when they couldn’t run their normal fundraising efforts and events.

Pur Community Investment panels ran virtually while maintaining process review integrity.

We turned our Bailey Conference Room into the Bailey Learning Academy for our employees’ children.

We launched “Look Out Reach Out” Child Abuse Prevention campaign, gaining national media attention for these collaborative efforts.

We partnered with 1921 Race Massacre to amplify messages and co-present the Pathways to Hope dedication.

Our IT Staff served on Mayor’s internet taskforce to implement strategies to help close the gap for distance learning
