“Recently we found ourselves struggling to find a path forward. Declining philanthropy in our community as well as several staff changes led our Board to assess whether to continue operations or make major modifications. At its December 2018 meeting, we voted to substantially restructure the organization. By using best practices learned through active involvement in ESC-US, we were able to incorporate lessons learned through other affiliates. As we continue our mission of serving central Oklahoma nonprofits, we do so with a real sense of gratitude for its affiliation with ESC-US.
