FEBRUARY 2018 DEVELOPMENT UPDATE
Share |



FROM THE DEVELOPMENT CHAIR
Dear fellow LOK members and friends,

In 1996, Leadership Oklahoma established an endowment fund to secure the future of the organization. The purpose of the endowment fund is to provide a permanent source of income to offset administrative expenses, allow the organization to focus fundraising efforts exclusively on program expenses and serve as a financial cushion against lean times to ensure its mission will be sustained in perpetuity. Gifts to Leadership Oklahoma’s endowment fund are made through Lifetime Memberships and are fully tax-deductible. Currently there are 400 Lifetime Members who have contributed to the endowment. I am very pleased to announce and to thank our newest Lifetime Members:
