Volunteers for Youth recently launched an initiative to celebrate 20 years of work since our birth as a local organization in 1998.  During the past 20 years we have had tremendous impacts on our Rogers County youth through our PAL mentoring programs, our BLAST after school program, our StepUp program, our U-Turn Academy and through our prevention and healthy living work.  Our goal is to have an even greater impact in the future.One of our ongoing needs is continued funding to be able to bring these crucial services to our community. Each year we experience less support from grants, state funding and foundations.  Having turned 20 years old, we feel we are wiser than when we first began this endeavor.  In celebration of our birthday, we are encouraging 20 of our most loyal supporters to partner with us in a different way.  You may be thinking, “here comes their ask for more support”.  But, we are only asking for a little bit of your time.  Our goal is to build long-term sustainability for Volunteers for Youth, so that we are around for another 20 years and more.

We are launching a “20 for 20” campaign that focuses on you, your family, and your legacy. What does this mean?  We are asking that 20 of our supporters commit to have a conversation about legacy and planning with our gift planning office.  Every conversation is complimentary, confidential, and customized to each family’s goals and desires.  Our belief is that you will get vital information that will help you plan for your family, your finances, and support causes you are passionate about.

Can we count you in as one of our 20 conversations for this year? If so, please contact us as soon as possible. You can read more about our involvement with the Tulsa Community Foundation’s Planned Giving Partnership and see the current list of participating nonprofits by visiting
