We have a long tradition of giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Each year employees take initiative and help Oklahomans in need by serving as “Champions of the Community.” CompSource Mutual aims to positively transform our communities by partnering with the United Way and providing additional service opportunities for employees. Our employees generously give their time and resources to the initiatives listed below.

One of our guiding principles is community giving. We encourage our employees to volunteer their time, talent and resources to charitable organizations. We value giving back and investing in our communities by providing paid time off to our employees who volunteer.
United Way Campaign
Through employee contributions combined with the company match, we contributed approximately $90,000 through our United Way Campaign to benefit partner agencies from Tulsa Area United Way and United Way of Central Oklahoma. We worked to raise these funds by participating in a variety of fun and competitive fundraising activities. Additionally, employees receive a bonus day of leave if we meet out employee contribution goal, something we have done successfully since 2015.
Oklahoma Standard Campaign
Every April, we recognize the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing by participating in the Oklahoma Standard Campaign. CompSource Mutual employees donate blood, visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum and host our annual food drive.
Each quarter, we make life-saving blood donations by partnering with the Oklahoma Blood Institute for an on-site blood drive. Knowing that our donations go a long way to benefit Oklahomans means so much to us.
As a leader in the workers’ compensation industry, we are committed to positively impacting Oklahomans. Serving as a corporate sponsor for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Energy FC, and Tulsa Oilers allows us to partner with other organizations by investing time, talent and resources into enhancing our communities.
School Supply Drive
The success of students at Positive Tomorrows (OKC) and Street School (Tulsa) is another cause close to the hearts of our employees. Through our summertime challenge, employees compete to collect the most items needed by both schools, knowing that in the end, it’s our communities’ future that benefits the most.
In conjunction with the Oklahoma Standard Campaign, our employees collect non-perishable food items and make monetary donations to the Regional Food Bank (OKC) and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma (Tulsa). Through the efforts of our employees, more than 20,000 meals are provided to hungry Oklahomans each year.
