EMPOWERING PEOPLE IN NEED,
WITH KNOWLEDGE, TOOLS, AND SKILLS
“Identifying individuals who are passionate about making a difference is one of our most important giving criteria.”
-- John-Kelly C. Warren
Research is important for the long run. Yet diseases call for knowledge, tools, and skills today. It is best when access to the resources is local and personal. That's why The William K. Warren Foundation partners with organizations such as the Alzheimer's Association of Oklahoma, Autism Center of Tulsa, Gi Health Foundation, Family & Children’s Services, Oklahoma Chapter of the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, American Heart Association-Tulsa, and The Parent Child Center of Tulsa to improve the lives of those who are physically and mentally challenged and their families.
*“For many patients and their families, these organizations are the best resources they have.”
- John-Kelly C. Warren
Nobody ever said that raising a child is easy. So, if raising a healthy child is difficult, how much harder is it to raise a child who is chronically ill or developmentally delayed? The William K. Warren Foundation supports several local organizations that empower parents and others raising children with the knowledge, tools, and skills they need to be more successful.
Heart disease is the number one killer in Oklahoma*, and much of it can be prevented through health education. Other diseases like Alzheimer’s, autism, mental illness, myasthenia gravis, and muscular dystrophy are still seeking preventions, treatments, and cures. The William K. Warren Foundation supports local organizations as they direct sufferers and their families to resources, tools, and skills that make a difference.
