CORETZ FAMILY FOUNDATION

ABOUT THE CORETZ FAMILY ‚ÄčFOUNDATION

The Coretz Family Foundation (CFF) was founded in 2004 as a private foundation by the Coretz family. The Coretz family has embedded their lives and companies in the Tulsa community and attributes their success to their fellow Tulsans.

Guided by Jewish values and the tradition of helping others, the Coretz Family Foundation supports Tulsa nonprofits producing measurable and meaningful impact. The board is comprised of Coretz family members.

MISSION

The Coretz Family Foundation seeks to advance equity in Tulsa by removing barriers to access and improving the systems that expand opportunity.

VISION

A flourishing community in which all Tulsans feel connected and have the opportunity to thrive.

EQUITY

We recognize that Tulsa’s history of racial violence and discrimination, including the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, has a harmful and lasting impact on communities of color to this day. With this in mind, equity is at the heart of the Coretz Family Foundation’s mission, vision, and values. We are passionately committed to supporting initiatives and funding organizations who share our belief that diversity and inclusion are vital to repairing damaging disparities and building an equitable future.
