United Way of Central Oklahoma kicked off its 2019 annual campaign this morning and announced its fundraising goal of $17.1 million! Money raised will be invested into 113 health and human service programs at 57 Partner Agencies. In addition to United Way’s campaign, the event also serves as the start of the State Charitable Campaign and the Heart of the City Campaign.
“Our Partner Agencies are stepping up for our community and are addressing our most pressing challenges head on,” said Debby Hampton, United Way of Central Oklahoma president and CEO. “It takes all of us to make our community stronger, and we’re determined to do our part through this year’s fundraising campaign.”
Pacesetter campaign results were also announced and, to date, $4,557,795 has been raised, accounting for 27 percent of the campaign goal. Pacesetters are companies that run their workplace campaigns early and set the momentum for others that will kickoff this fall. Kick-off festivities included community leaders enjoying the tradition of flipping pancakes while serving as “celebrity chefs” and the annual pancake flipping contest was held on stage with Rumble the Bison taking home the coveted golden spatula award for the second time in a row.
United Way of Central Oklahoma also announced the winners of their new social innovation grant, Wayfinder.
