TULSA — The Tulsa Community Foundation and Tulsa Area United Way have established a Disaster Relief Fund for Eastern Oklahoma to provide assistance to nonprofit organizations that are helping to provide services and support to residents impacted by recent flooding and severe storms.

Donations will assist with the mid- and long-term recovery needs.


“Help your neighbors if you are not affected. Step Up. This is Tulsa, America’s Most Generous City. We help people here, because it’s what’s right and what’s expected,” according to Tulsa Community Foundation CEO, Phil Lakin.

Widespread storm and flooding damage has been reported across Tulsa and surrounding communities, and extends to other parts of Eastern Oklahoma such as Glenpool, Muskogee and Webbers Falls.

One 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.
