Tulsa Area United Way Building Blocks

Our Vision

The Tulsa Area United Way envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their full human potential.

Our Mission

The Tulsa Area United Way unites people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

What Makes Us Unique?

The Tulsa Area United Way is the heartbeat of our community, bringing people and resources to bear on our most pressing social issues. We are the only nonprofit organization in the six-county area funding 61 partner agencies whose critical services deliver the three building blocks to a better life: Education, Financial Stability, and Health/Safety. By focusing on these essential building blocks, community volunteers, along with the United Way, help identify urgent community needs and ensure that all donations are wisely invested to meet the highest identified necessities. The funds target community initiatives and help sustain our 61 partner agencies in providing services for citizens of every age and circumstance, through all stages of their lifetimes from prenatal to end-of-life.



Our Process All contributions have a direct and profound impact on improving the lives of people you know – living in your neighborhood, attending your children’s school, working alongside you every day. In addition to meeting the needs of our community, these combined donations also create a significant economic return on investment in this six-county area. A recent research study shows that our United Way is truly an economic engine for this community: • For every dollar given, our partner agencies leveraged an additional $11.30 from other resources • Our investment in partner agencies directly and indirectly supported 5,760 jobs

• Annual economic impact was $285,544,318 The economic and social impact of the Tulsa Area United Way is far-reaching. This is why our United Way exists: to improve lives and build a stronger community by bringing citizens together to give, advocate and volunteer. The Tulsa Area United Way Economic Impact Study was completed in December 2012 by the Community Service Council with assistance from the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University.

From Rebellion to Responsibility Jesus J. is a man of few words, but he could admit he was in trouble and needed help. That help came in the form of Tulsa Boys’ Home. A regular day starts with stretches and exercise, chores and breakfast. The boys attend three group sessions each day where they work through a 12-step program with a therapist. Then they talk about their goals for the day. “The group times help me keep my sanity – keeping me from using,” said Jesus. Before coming to the Boys’ Home, Jesus

Carldell Pearson

Gaining an Apartment, a Job and a Purpose Previously convicted for drug possession, 55-year-old Carldell Pearson opted for life on the streets to escape a home where he was surrounded by drugs. Even in the coldest winter months, Carldell could be found perched on a bench beneath a streetlight in downtown Tulsa, reading his stack of library books. Averaging five books per week, reading was his therapy.

He wanted purpose and to stay focused in dividuals and businesses, helped piece the right direction. Carldell’s life back together.

Hope in a Difficult Situation Claudette Akers went through a nightmare, not once, but twice. In 2010, after back surgery and a debilitating car accident, Claudette’s house caught on fire. Her disabled husband was inside at the time. They were both able to escape unharmed, but the couple lost everything.

Far More Than a Funder

New and Continuing Initiatives in 2013 and Beyond Women’s Leadership Council TULSA AREA UNITED WAY

The Women’s Leadership Council unites women – their time, talent and resources – into a powerful network of individuals. WLC focuses on developing new leadership for the community through encouragement of intergenerational interaction and mentoring. WLC members have a passion for improving the lives of others. The Tulsa chapter is more than 1,000 members strong, and is one of 120 Women’s Leadership Councils across the U.S., representing more than 50,000 women. Members may participate in monthly tours of local United Way agencies, an innovative mentor-protégé program, and a wide variety of community enrichment projects. The Hille Foundation, and another anonymous foundation, provided a $50,000 challenge grant for new and increased leadership gifts from WLC members in 2013.

Emerging Leaders Society

The goal of the Emerging Leaders Society is to prepare the next generation of leademerging leaders society ers and philanthropists. Membership is open to young professionals in their 20s, 30s Tulsa Area United Way and 40s, at various levels of support. Members at the highest levels of support will be paired with mentors who share their goals and interests and who are members of the United Way’s Alexis de Tocqueville Society. Members at all levels have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, learn more about philanthropy and participate in a wide variety of community enrichment projects. The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation has provided a challenge grant of $50,000 that matches all contributions by new members of the Emerging Leaders Society in 2013 and 2014.

Community Collaborations

The Tulsa Area United Way’s Community Collaborations initiative fosters cooperation among local non-profit organizations to meet specific community challenges. Collaborations must respond to systemic community needs that cannot be adequately addressed by a single organization, obtain support of multiple community funders, demonstrate a planned approach to serving a defined population with measurable outcomes, identify an administrative structure for accountability, and ensure an adequate budget for the full term of a project.

Venture Grants

Venture Grants are awarded to programs or collaborations that offer creative, innovative approaches to intractable community challenges. Funded initiatives must not be otherwise available in the community, and may be an adaptation or replication of a program proven successful in another part of the country. The Tulsa Area United Way awarded a wide spectrum of Venture Grants in 2013 to its partner agencies as well as other non-profit organizations.

Mary Ann Hille

2013 Clydella Hentschel Award Recipient


o Bob and Mary Ann Hille founded the Hille Foundation in 1997. It was a natural outgrowth of the spirit of giving in which they had been raised and of the basic Christian principle of lending a hand where needed. Feeling a deep loyalty to the people and state of Oklahoma where they both had grown up, they established the Hille Foundation to focus on benefiting those closest at hand, hoping to extend to others the opportunities that had been generously given to them. Mary Ann is a true champion for people young and old through her work with the Crosstown Learning Center and Saint Simeon’s Episcopal Home. She is leading a capital campaign for Crosstown Learning Center, a Tulsa Area United Way partner agency, which is currently in the planning phase. Mary Ann served on the Saint Simeon’s Board of Trustees for nine years. In 2005, she advocated

for the redesign of Saint Simeon’s Healthcare Center, proposing changes to enhance the lives of residents and the working environment of staff. As a member of the Saint Simeon’s Foundation Board of Trustees, Mary Ann’s wisdom and personal experience brought a reasoned and compassionate approach to the issues of aging. In 2014, she has agreed to once again serve on the Saint Simeon’s Foundation Board.

The two neighborhoods selected to participate in the program during its inaugural years are the Eugene Field and Kendall-Whittier neighborhoods in Tulsa. Growing Together is a prime example of a community coming together to improve the lives of children and their parents.
