This year has been one of the most trying and unprecedented years in modern history. We witnessed the worst global pandemic in more than 100 years as well as civil unrest that marred cities across the nation. Yet, we somehow managed to find a way to come together.
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to have witnessed our citizens pulling together to invest in our community, our schools and our nonprofits. This year, we awarded $218,756 in endowment distributions to Lawton-area organizations, $89,344 in grants and $31,500 in scholarship awards. The passion, generosity and dedication of our Lawton-area residents have sustained this community throughout the year, and our future continues to look brighter and brighter.
We hope you enjoy this year’s annual report. It highlights just how much we inspired each other and how we came together to make a significant difference in our community.
