Foundations make grant for Okla. tornado victims
May 22, 2013 22:31 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Two foundations have teamed up to provide a $2 million grant to the United Way of Central Oklahoma to support relief and recovery efforts to Oklahoma tornado victims.
The grant was announced Wednesday by the Inasmuch Foundation and the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation. United Way will distribute funds without administrative fees to United Way partner agencies working on tornado relief efforts. The fund will serve immediate needs as well as intermediate and long-term care.
Bob Ross, president and CEO of both foundations, says the organizations are hopeful their gift will encourage other corporations, foundations and individuals to contribute to the United Way.
Debby Hampton, president and CEO of United Way of Central Oklahoma, says the agency will use the money to serve as many tornado victims as possible.
