Joe Moran is the winner of the Giving Spirit Award for the month of June. Below is the nomination submission for Joe:
Joe is an incredible asset to the Tulsa community and its nonprofits.
He has helped organize and chair numerous fundraisers and co-founded the Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Awards. Hosted by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, the ONE Awards is the only event of its kind in the state and honors 24 nonprofits annually for their contributions to their communities.
Joe's guidance and planning were pivotal in making the event, now in its fifth year, a success. He is always willing to help attract funders and donate to causes about which he cares.
In addition to his contributions to nonprofit fundraisers, Joe has served on multiple nonprofit boards, including LIFE Senior Services, Tulsa Boys' Home, Tulsa Library Trust, Leadership Oklahoma, Inc. and Catholic Charities.
He is also the board chair for the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. His extensive experience working with nonprofits through his family's foundation make him a great asset to any board on which he serves. He voluntarily commits a tremendous amount of time to helping strengthen nonprofits in his community so they can better impact the people they serve.
Everything Joe volunteers for is out of genuine concern for the well-being of others and without any expectation of recognition. He is an incredible example of someone who exhibits the giving spirit on a daily basis in his life and is a wonderful candidate for this award.
Each month, someone in the Tulsa viewing area will be awarded for his or her volunteer spirit - someone who has made a difference in our community.
