2009 - President's Philanthropy Award - The Apache Foundation - Houston

Tt is our very special honor to recognize an incomparable “above and beyond” effort with our newly-minted President’s Philanthropy Award.  Tonight we recognize the Houston-based Apache Foundation, an organization whose impact has been appreciated all across the state of Oklahoma.

With a mission to enhance communities through environmental stewardship, the foundation’s three-year-old Tree Grant program already has delivered and helped communities in 14 states plant more than one million seedlings and young trees.  More than 30 parks, schools and other public lands are among the recipients of 70-thousand-plus trees in the Sooner state.

Presenting the inaugural President’s Philanthropy Award to this giant in the environmental stewardship movement, the Apache Foundation, is Keep Oklahoma Beautiful board president, Jan Kunze.  Congratulations and thank you, Apache Foundation!

Accepting is Ron Johnston - Apache Foundation
