Chamber Volunteers Raise $3.4 Million in Resource Campaign

The Tulsa Regional Chamber’s 24th annual Resource Campaign recently concluded, raising $3,410,368.

Revenue generated during the campaign makes up nearly 25 percent of the Chamber’s annual budget. Over the course of the 10-week campaign, 100 volunteers sold sponsorships to 330 member companies for the Chamber’s programs, meetings, events and publications.

“The annual resource campaign is an integral source of funding for the Chamber,” said Steve Bradshaw, president and of Financial Corporation and 2018 Tulsa Regional Chamber chair. “We thank the campaign leadership team, the volunteers and our member companies for believing in the Chamber’s mission. These funds will allow the Chamber to build on our region’s current momentum and move northeast Oklahoma forward.”

Revenue generated through the campaign supports the Chamber’s member services and programming for small business, entrepreneurship, education, workforce attraction and legislative advocacy. It also supports the contributions the Chamber makes to its regional economic development partnership, Tulsa’s Future; and the convention and visitors bureau housed at the Chamber, VisitTulsa.

The 2018 campaign—which had a cooking theme and was titled Recipe for Success—was led by Shane Fernandez, president of Nabholz Corporation, and co-chair Sharon Fletcher, president and of CommunityCare.

“Most importantly, I want to thank the dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly on this campaign for the past 10 weeks,” said Shane Fernandez. “The success of this campaign is a direct reflection of their commitment. I’m proud we are able to support the Chamber’s outstanding program of work through this campaign.”

The top producing teams were led by team captains Lynda Wingo, Julie Rethmeyer and Shirley Bailey. The top individual producers were Mark Poole and Gary Broom, who both had more than $100,000 in cash sales.

The Tulsa Regional Chamber’s Resource Campaign is considered a model program by chamber peers and continues to be one of the largest campaigns of its kind in the nation.
