A Word on Our Sponsors:

The Sarkeys Foundation has a long legacy of giving, having been founded in 1962 by its namesake Sarkeys J. Sarkeys, who came to the U.S. from Lebanon at the age of 17.  To date, they have given more than $80 million in grants to an array of charitable organizations and institutions in Oklahoma.

The Potts Family Foundation has two key areas of focus: building the capacity of organizations to improve their communities through the work of The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits and supporting economic growth by partnering with individuals and organizations committed to sustainable initiatives in early childhood development. Their motto: “Investing in kids is good business!” We agree!

AEP Public Service Company of Oklahoma has for a century made it a point to be much more than an average company in their communities and their state by getting involved in community affairs. PSO has offered financial help to nonprofits across the state while PSO employees have civically engaged themselves in their communities.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a national private charitable organization whose mission is to build a better future for disadvantaged children. Founded in 1948, AECF has donated billions over the years to organizations and institutions who advocate for policies, reforms and stronger communities that more effectively meet the needs of our nation’s most vulnerable children.

Without these sponsors, we would not be able to do what we love – help Oklahomans #BeAVoice for children!

Don’t forget to REGISTER, and invite your friends!

One thought on “The Skinny on the KIDS COUNT Power Lunch”

  1. I will never forget the advocacy skills I learned in your KidsCount program several years ago, during my internship at OU. Thank you, OICA, for your strong voice for Oklahoma’s children.
