Tulsa Area United Way Names Director of Donor Relations


The Tulsa Area United Way has announced its first full-time staff member devoted to leading the Alexis de Tocqueville Society and foundations outreach – Amanda Morrall.
The Alexis de Tocqueville is an organization for individuals and couples that give the United Way $10,000 or more each year.
Morrall will serve as the local United Way’s first director of donor relations and will be responsible for collaborating with area foundations, increasing membership in the Tocqueville Society, engaging Tocqueville members and coordinating Tocqueville events – all for community impact.
“We believe there is tremendous growth potential with our Alexis de Tocqueville Society and the first step toward that growth is the addition of a full-time staff member to operate the organization,” said Alison Anthony, President and CEO. “Through Amanda’s leadership, we have plans to significantly increase the size of our Tocqueville Society.”
In addition, Morrall will be responsible for stewardship of the many local foundations that support the annual United Way campaign and the development of a planned giving program.
“She will be developing and strengthening our major gift program, including gifts from individual donors and foundations, as well as aligning the major gifts program with our overall growth strategy for United Way,” Anthony said.
Previously, Morrall served in several roles at Tulsa Public Schools, including special assistant to the superintendent and program manager for the Wallace Foundation grant for social and emotional learning.
She is no stranger to the United Way. At Tulsa Public Schools, she coordinated the district’s campaign where they saw substantial growth in leadership giving over the last three years.
Morrall also served as an intern in the Office of Presidential Personnel at the White House and a fellow at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles. She received a Master of Public Policy at UCLA and completed her undergraduate studies at Duke University. 
In addition, she was director of education partnerships at Growing Together, Inc., in Tulsa. She is a native of Kansas City, Mo.
