2001 - Community Effort Awards - OKC Community Foundation-Margaret Annis Boys Trust

OKC COMMUNITY FOUNDATION – MARGARET ANNIS BOYS TRUST - Pop. More than 60,000

A lasting legacy of beauty for the public lands in Oklahoma County is the living proof of accomplishment for the Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s Margaret Annis Boys Trust. The tenth anniversary of the program shows over one million dollars distributed for more than 100 worthy projects and a total value estimated to be three times that amount.

Beneficiary organizations are required to have a vested interest in the project, be able to contribute cash and materials, and provide on-going maintenance.

The improvements include city gateways, parks, medians, neighborhood entries, street- and highwayscapes, and special gardens.

The program has sparked numerous collaborations among volunteer groups, schools, city and county governments, and other community organizations. A judge summed it up as “A worthy organization which helps the metro communities improve their attractiveness and quality of life.”

THE OKLAHOMA CITY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION AND THE MARGARET ANNIS BOYS TRUST MEANS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
