Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization each month, all year long.

In Dec. 2020, Phillips Murrah 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.

Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in February 2024 is Northeast OKC Renaissance Inc. #PIFOKC

Northeast OKC Renaissance Inc.

February is designated as Black History Month in the United States. This tradition started during the Jim Crow era and was officially recognized in 1976 as part of the nation’s bicentennial celebrations. Its main objective is to honor African Americans’ invaluable contributions and acknowledge their sacrifices.

In honor of Black History Month, Phillips Murrah proudly supports Northeast Oklahoma City Renaissance, Inc. (NEOKCR) as our February Paying it Forward beneficiary. 

In 2014, the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City established the Northeast Renaissance Steering Committee (NERSC) as an ad-hoc group of community stakeholders seeded to represent the NE community’s voice while vetting Northeast Renaissance development efforts. In 2016, the NERSC leadership established Northeast OKC Renaissance Inc. (NEOKCR). 

NE OKC Renaissance Inc. aims to catalyze ethical, place-based community development in Northeast Oklahoma City (NEOKC). They have been helping to restore NEOKC’s economic activity while preserving and energizing the historically vibrant culture.
