Want to help storm and flood victims?
Fundraisers have been set up to assist those affected by recent storms and flooding.
Disaster Relief Fund
The Tulsa Community Foundation and the Tulsa Area United Way have established the Disaster Relief Fund for Eastern Oklahoma to provide assistance to nonprofit organizations that are providing services and support to residents of eastern Oklahoma affected by recent flooding and tornadic storms. Donations to the fund will assist with mid- and long-term recovery needs.
Donations can be made securely at TulsaCF.org/2019storms. Checks should be made payable to Tulsa Community Foundation and should include "Disaster Relief Fund for Eastern Oklahoma" on the memo line. Mail checks to Tulsa Community Foundation, 7030 S Yale Ave., Suite 600, Tulsa, OK 74136. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Once funds are collected, the Tulsa Community Foundation will work with the Tulsa Area United Way to receive grant applications from agencies that have provided direct services to victims. Both organizations will assure that grants are made to legitimate service organizations.
