Our Annual Giving Fund provides critical operating funds for programs and key initiatives as well as general support to keep our mission moving forward. One of our central program goals is to help Warriors of all abilities find, share and follow their voice.
This year we need your support as we elevate our Warriors’ voices with respect to how they choose to learn, work and live within our community.
How will you use your voice this giving season?
ANNUAL GIVING FUND GOAL $80,000
Your support work to expand community opportunities for our Warriors, for new experiences, new vocational training and jobs, and paths to new residential options. Our 2019 video series shows the impact and importance of your support
A dynamic part of the Wednesday Life Shop crew, an energetic veteran participant in After Opps, and a steadfast attendee at OK events, Ryan Gravely is an extremely dedicated and hard-working Warrior. Ryan’s commitment to the cause combined with her cheerful spirit has earned her this year’s Warrior of the Year Award!
Ryan turned 22 last year and graduated from the OPRF CITE Program, but has not slowed down. Outside of the Knocks, she holds down jobs in the community at Happy Apple Pie Shop and SPENGA. Ryan’s confidence seems to grow every day. She is an active leader, using her voice to suggest program activities, indicate her preferences, clarify daily schedules, and encourage her friends.
“The support of the staff and her friends here has really given her more confidence,” said Ryan’s mother Whitney Gravely.

Did you know that many employers match their employees’ donations? A matching contribution could double or even triple the impact of your gift.

We have assembled two very generous matching gift offers to help drive our Annual Giving Fund. The Coleman Foundation and a few generous OK supporters are backing our effort to call out to the Warrior Nation and help meet the match. Read on for more details.
From now until #GIVINGTUESDAY on December 3rd, the Coleman Foundation will provide any gift of $1,250 or more with a $1,250 match, up to a total match cap of $12,500. This means that gift of $1,250 becomes $2,500 to fund programs, vocational opportunities and more.
From now until #GIVINGTUESDAY on December 3rd, all gifts greater than $25 will be matched on a 1:1 basis, up to a maximum match of $500. This means that a $25 donation becomes $50, a $100 donation becomes $200 and a $500 donation becomes $1,00 of funds for the Warrior Mission!
