Broken Arrow Leadership Foundation, Inc.
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, formerly known as the Broken Arrow Jaycees.
The Broken Arrow Leadership Foundation is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to community support and leadership training in Oklahoma.

We hold true to our mission of providing leadership development through community service that was established in 1954 when the Broken Arrow Jaycees were formed.

Broken Arrow Leadership Foundation Mission:
Providing Leadership Education and Training through Community Service.
The Broken Arrow Leadership Foundation, Inc. was formed in October of 2013 as a Not For Profit corporation in the state of Oklahoma. Tax Exempt status was granted by the Internal Revenue Service in May of 2015. Contributions to us are tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the internal revenue code.
We are an all-volunteer organization. Our mission is to provide leadership training through community service. Our story really begins in 1954 with the formation of the Broken Arrow Jaycees chapter. Over the years our programs expanded from only serving Broken Arrow to also serving many other communities in eastern Oklahoma.
As the state Jaycees offices folded and the national offices moved out of our state, it became apparent to the membership that it was time for a change. A decision was made to fold the chapter and form an organization of our own. This is just what happened in the fall of 2013. In an effort to have local control of our organization while continuing our mission, the foundation was formed.
The Broken Arrow Leadership Foundation currently reaches out to 24 different communities throughout Oklahoma with our various programs. With the support of many donors and volunteers, we bring relief to families in our communities that find themselves in a time of need.

Summer Camp for Children with Special Needs
Every year we provide scholarships for children ages 6 and older with any physical or intellectual disability. Through the support of volunteer counselors, campers leave limitations behind during Make Promises Happen camp events at Central Christian Camp. The children enjoy fishing, boating, arts & crafts, swimming, archery, dances, talent shows and much more.
Holiday Food Basket Drive
Annually, we provide much needed relief to families that would otherwise do without during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. With the assistance of school counselors and other service agencies, we are able to identify the families that are truly in need. To date we have been able to provide help to as many as 24 different communities throughout Oklahoma. These include Broken Arrow, Bixby, Bristow, Catoosa, Chelsea, Claremore, Cleveland, Collinsville, Coweta, Glenpool, Henryetta, Jenks, Kellyville, Manford, Muskogee, Nowata, Okmulgee, Owasso, Pryor, Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Skiatook, Tulsa and Wagoner.
Back to School Shopping Spree
Every fall we assist needy students in the purchase of clothing and supplies for their return back to school.
Christmas Shopping Spree
We help underprivileged children buy Christmas presents for their family members. They can also purchase clothing and personal items that they may need as well as a gift for themselves. When shopping is complete, we assist with wrapping gifts while the kids enjoy hot chocolate and donuts.
