2023 Tulsa Area United Way Challenge Grants

The Mr. Henry Community Leadership Challenge

This program, funded by The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation and named in honor of Mr. Henry Zarrow and his legacy of giving, would match any new leadership gift of $600 to $9,999. It would also match any increased leadership gift (i.e., an individual increasing their gift from $600 to $700 would have $100 matched).

The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies Tocqueville Step Up Program and New or Increased Tocqueville Challenge

Individuals may join TAUW’s Tocqueville Society ($10,000+ individual contributions) with this Step Up program receiving Tocqueville Society benefits in the first year. The match is used to fund the $5,000 portion for first year members and the $2,500 portion for second year members of the Step Up program. This grant also matches any increase from current members and any new Tocqueville gifts at $10,000. New is defined as not giving at the Tocqueville level in 2022.

The Hille Foundation Women United Challenge

Women United’s mission is to unite women – their time, talent, and resources – into a powerful network of individuals devoted to enhancing and strengthening intergenerational opportunities within our community. This challenge will match any new gift for those joining Women United (gift of $250 or more required for membership) and will match increased gifts from current members.

The QuikTrip Small and Medium Business New Campaign Match Program

This program encourages new campaigns at companies with 250 or fewer employees and helps TAUW with its objective to grow the base of companies participating in the annual campaign by matching dollar for dollar any new gifts from businesses that haven’t participated since 2022 and any employee campaigns for companies currently only giving a corporate gift.

The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropy Match Program for Foundations and Donor Advised Funds

The program matches any new dollars, either increases from current donors or new (not given last year) gifts from foundations, trusts or donor advised funds.
