Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization each month, all year long.
Since December of 2020, Phillips Murrah has partnered with Oklahoma NPR radio station KGOU to sponsor broadcast announcements each month that shine a light on a selected non-profit organization. Our aim is to amplify each beneficiary organizations’ needs and goals, and to help increase awareness, drive volunteer quality and quantity, assist in fundraising support, and improve capacity to deliver service to the community. In December 2022, Phillips Murrah expanded the reach of our Paying it Forward partnership to include NPR’s other OKC radio station, KOSU.
Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in June 2023 is The Alzheimer’s Association. #PIFOKC
The Alzheimer's Association
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. Phillips Murrah is proud to support the Alzheimer’s Association Oklahoma Chapter as our June Paying it Forward beneficiary. Alzheimer’s Association Oklahoma Chapter serves all seventy-seven counties in Oklahoma, with offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. They help all those facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by providing support groups and educational resources, while advancing crucial research and public policy initiatives. Their support groups are led by trained volunteers and offered regularly. The education programs they provide for the general public are both online and in person, and feature information on topics such as diagnosis, warning signs, communication, living with Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving techniques.
We are also helping them call attention to their 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s event, which takes place this fall with events in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Enid, Stillwater, Ponca City, Ardmore, and Lawton. See HERE for each event’s specific date and sign-up link.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. They advocate for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s. They are the leading voice for Alzheimer’s disease advocacy, making the need for Alzheimer’s care, education and research heard at every level of government, including the Oklahoma State Capitol. As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research, they are committed to accelerating global progress toward methods of treatment, prevention, and a cure.
