George Kaiser Family Foundation announced it has donated more than $6.3 million in grants to nearly 80 Tulsa-area social service agencies.
In a news release, the foundation says more than $4.2 million was donated to support human service organizations, $1 million supported community health organizations and more than $1.3 million was donated earlier in 2014 to support basic services for various education organizations.
“The foundation is dedicated to providing equal opportunity for young children in Tulsa and these organizations provide the critical services that Tulsans need,” said Ken Levit, executive director of GKFF.
“We are proud and excited to invest in and support early childhood education, community health and social service organizations as they help Tulsans build a better life in 2015.”
Levit says the foundation collaborated with local partners to identify pressing social service needs in Tulsa and surrounding areas, pairing those needs with respected nonprofit grant recipients for the most impact in the community.
