Women of Compassion

Women of Compassion enables generous, community-minded women from across Oklahoma to be part of gifts that are collectively larger than most can afford to contribute individually. Members meet with other women once a year for a fantastic women’s event, where they have a voice to determine how the yearly contributions are spent. Women of Compassion is open to women of all ages and denominations who want to make a difference in the lives of children.

Women of Compassion’s goal is to reach at least 100 members each year.* By reaching our goal of 100 members, we will be capable of awarding a $50,000 grant to one prospective recipient and the remaining $50,000 will provide much needed operating costs to the remaining participants. If more than 100 members are reached, subsequent grants will be awarded in 50,000 increments. Each increment will alternate between a prospective recipient and an operating grant.
