Wymer Brownlee Wealth Strategies announced today a contribution of $100,000 for the second consecutive year to Positive Tomorrows, Oklahoma’s only elementary school dedicated to educating homeless children. The donation marks the largest financial gift directed to Positive Tomorrows through the Opportunity Scholarship Fund and enables more than 14 students to attend school for the 2018-2019 academic year.
“Wymer Brownlee’s generous donation came at an excellent time to help us sustain operational funding while many donors made capital campaign contributions,” said Susan Agel, president of Positive Tomorrows. “It’s because of gifts like this that we can add more students once in our new building.”
In 2017, Positive Tomorrows launched a capital campaign to raise $10.2 million for construction of a new facility. Its 8,000 square-foot building had reached capacity and required the nonprofit to turn away nearly 100 students annually. Thanks to the support of local corporations and individual donors, Positive Tomorrows reached its campaign goal and broke ground on the new building in June. Wymer Brownlee’s donation will cover all student expenses for half of a classroom for a full school year.
“I’m incredibly grateful for the resources and opportunities my family and company have been given. However, I recognize that many in our community face significant barriers to success,” said Kyle Brownlee, chief executive officer of Wymer Brownlee Wealth Strategies. “It’s a privilege to partner with Positive Tomorrows to help remove those barriers and use our resources to bless others.”
