BC Clark Jewelers to Match Donations Made to United Way of Central Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY – In recognition of its 125th anniversary, BC Clark Jewelers has announced a generous matching gift on brand new donations to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, up to $125,000. This matching challenge will be effective Nov. 1 thru Jan. 15, 2018. This donation is made possible through the B.C. Clark Family Fund of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

“BC Clark Jewelers and the Clark family have a long history in the Oklahoma City area, and because our community has given us so much over the many decades, we wanted to show our appreciation by giving back,” said Coleman Clark, BC Clark Jewelers president. “In celebration of our 125th anniversary, we wanted to do something big for the community. We have a long history with the United Way and they are such a vital part of the community we love, it was a logical choice to team up to help raise funds to help those in need.”

This challenge gift supporting the United Way will double every new dollar donated to the organization as well as doubling the impact of every gift.

“We are thrilled to partner with BC Clark Jewelers on this amazing challenge gift,” said Debby Hampton, United Way of Central Oklahoma CEO and president. “It could not have come at a more critical time. The social service needs continue to increase in our community we need to raise as much money as possible to help our agencies deliver much needed services.”
