Ensuring Wise Investments
Cathy GatesMember, Board of Directors
Cathy Gates knows the importance of fiscal responsibility.
Cathy is retired from Ernst & Young. She has been a member of the Tulsa Area United Way Board of Directors, served on the Finance and Audit Committee, and volunteers on a Community Investments panel.
“The most impressive aspect of the Tulsa Area United Way to me is the level of accountability of the partner agencies. This ensures that we remain good stewards of the community’s money.”
Through her participation in Ernst & Young’s United Way campaign, Cathy was moved by speakers from partner agencies. It was after this experience that she decided to get more involved with TAUW and was asked to serve on the board.
“I’ve enjoyed learning more about the power of the United Way’s Community Investments process and how it identifies the greatest needs in our community.”
She has gotten an inside glimpse into what TAUW partner agencies do first hand and the incredible impact TAUW dollars have when they are invested back into the community.
