11/19/2020

 

The Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW) announced the grand total of its challenging fundraising campaign on November 19 at the Admiral Twin Drive-In.

Caron Lawhorn of ONE Gas, the 2020 Campaign Chair, joined by TAUW president and CEO, Alison Anthony announced that together, the community exceeded its initial goal of 23,720,000 and raised $24,025,924.

“What an amazing way to celebrate 96 years of building stronger communities," Alison said. " We never imagined we would be in a world-wide global health crisis, and this year just goes to show how remarkable our United Way partner companies and nonprofit organizations truly are.”

“This has truly been one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences of my life,” Caron stated. “We have a reputation of being one of the most philanthropic communities in the country for a reason, and from companies and their employees, to foundations and individual donors, everyone demonstrates compassion and commitment to strengthening the social safety net in our region.”

The money raised in the campaign supports community collaborations and 59 partner agencies in the Tulsa area that provide a social safety net enabling education, financial stability and health and safety for thousands of people in 2021.
