Five Tulsa agencies have been named as finalists for the 10th annual Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence Awards.

The awards by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits honor organizations from across the state for their excellence in eight categories: arts and humanities, community, education, health services, self-sufficiency, seniors, youth services and an open category.

Area finalists include Hospitality House of Tulsa, Reading Partners, Catholic Charities, Tristesse Grief Center and the Car Care Clinic.

“The finalists are recognized, not merely for their efforts to better their community, but for their quality of process toward that effort,” said David Hogan, chair of the ONE Awards Selection Commission. “These are committed individuals working together for the greater good of all Oklahomans.”

Category winners receive $7,500; the other finalists are awarded $5,000. The overall winner will receive $10,000. A total of nearly $150,000 will be awarded April 29 during a ceremony at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center.

The ONE Awards was established in 2008 to honor nonprofits for their work to improve their respective communities and change lives.

“The finalists this year are impressive and incredibly diverse, representing many parts of the state and an array of missions,” Hogan said.
