When reviewing Joe Moran’s decades-long listing of work with non-profits, three things stand out: longevity; capacity to lead capital campaigns; and ability to create and chair successful fundraising events.
Joe’s service to several boards and organizations is now approaching three decades. He has been a member of the Rotary Club of Tulsa since 1988, and has served on Catholic Charities Board of Governors since 1995. He was on the Monte Cassino Schools Board of Directors from 2000 to 2004. He has also been on the St. John Community Liaison Board since 2003, on the St. John Medical Center Board of Directors since 2006, serving as chairman since 2016. In 2018, he joined the St. John Health System board. From 2004 to 2008, Joe was a member of the Tulsa Library Trust board. He was active on the Tulsa Boy’s Home Board of Directors from 2006 to 2016, and has been on the Board of Advisors for LIFE Senior Services since 2008. He also was on the Oklahoma Center for Non-Profits Board of Directors and the Leadership Oklahoma Board of Directors from 2007-2016. He joined the Oklahoma Hall of Fame/Gaylord-Pickens Museum Board to Directors in 2010, where he is still active.
While on the Monte Cassino Schools Board of Directors from 2000 to 2004, he co-chaired the $5.6 million capital improvements and endowment program in 2001. A member of the Tulsa Library Trust board from 2004 to 2008, Joe was a member of the capital campaign committee that raised $19 million for the construction of two new libraries. In 2005, he co-aired the $6.7 million campaign for capital improvements, endowment, scholarship and technology program for Bishop Kelly High School. While on the Catholic Charities Board of Governors, Joe was instrumental in creating the vision for the new campus concept, and donated the land.
