who we are

the organization

Impact Oklahoma is a network of like-minded women which focuses on five nonprofit categories: Family, Health and Wellness, Education, Community and Culture. The fields of interest are those women care about: the ones that we feel make our community stronger and better for everyone. The only thing missing is you! We began as a group of friends trying to make a difference, and our network has grown as we each invite more friends to join. You’ll meet women from all walks of life who will become your friends and a wonderful network for you.

how it started

Impact Oklahoma is a group of generous, strong, community-minded women. We began, humbly, in 2003, on a girls’ weekend trip. Our founder Page Beatty told her friends about a magazine article she’d read regarding the first Impact group, which started in Cincinnati.

They contacted another friend, a banker, to help them with the financial aspects. After a year of planning and organizing, and an inaugural year of membership recruiting, Impact Oklahoma awarded its first grant in 2005.

Since that time, Impact Oklahoma has bestowed 43 grants totaling almost $2.9 million.

increasing philanthropy

Impact Oklahoma fosters and increases philanthropy in Central Oklahoma in two ways. We introduce our special culture of friendship and philanthropy to women who previously may not have had a chance to be involved in philanthropic efforts in any real way. Through involvement in Impact Oklahoma, our members enjoy the genuine satisfaction that comes with giving back to the community and seeing the results of our actions. Members become a part of a group of like-minded women, which becomes a network of new and old friends.

We hope to raise awareness among our membership of the many worthwhile nonprofit organizations serving Central Oklahoma through our foundation’s research and due diligence. This often inspires our members to become involved with the agencies in more personal ways.

your involvement

Impact Oklahoma is a way for you to become active in philanthropy at a level most of us cannot achieve as individuals. Each member’s $1,000 is amplified by the gifts of her fellow members, and the results make real change in our community. It is incredibly satisfying to watch our grants in action, and unequivocally heartwarming to do good in our community.

You can choose the level of involvement most compatible with your interests and time constraints. You may participate only in the annual voting process, or you may wish to play a more active role in helping Impact Oklahoma strengthen the fabric of Central Oklahoma.
