Robert’s Story

It's Bigger than All of Us

Robert Babcock

Member, Community Investments Panel Loaned Executive

The Tulsa Area United Way has become part of the fabric of who Robert Babcock is as a person.

“My involvement and experience over the years really stands out in my mind,” he explains. “It’s about fundraising, but also about so much more – the team spirit of everyone in a room, working together to make a tangible, immediate difference in our community.

“I have such a passion for the United Way and for all it stands for,” Robert explains. “This organization is bigger than all of us. What it not only aims to do, but actually does every day in Tulsa is inspiring.”

Noting that United Way volunteers come with every combination of skills, job titles, interests and characteristics, the one thing they all share is a passion to make a difference.

Robert counts many of his fellow volunteers as close personal friends whose interests and interactions extend far beyond their time together at the United Way.

“Serving in a leadership role at the United Way allows you to become part of Tulsa’s best and brightest talent pool. It’s an honor I’ll always cherish.”
