“None of us can do EVERYTHING,
But all of us can do SOMETHING.”
-Lizzie Swisher, Sunbeam Family Services Founder

Lizzie Swisher Society

Sunbeam Family Services has a long, rich history in the Oklahoma City community, beginning with the resolve of a young lady named Lizzie Swisher. She was an innovator, an advocate and a fundraiser. She called attention to the needs of homeless children and rallied individuals to join her cause. More than a century later, her determination to make lasting change by helping those in need is still part of the Sunbeam Family Services mission. In honor of Lizzie Swisher’s tenacity and the generosity of people in her community, Sunbeam Family Services has developed a leadership giving society named the Lizzie Swisher Society, recognizing individuals who donate $1,000 or more a year.

Lizzie Swisher Society benefits include:

  • Invitations to exclusive events, including the annual Senior Companion luncheon;
  • Lizzie Swisher Society lapel pin;
  • Special recognition in the Sunbeam annual report and website;
  • Exclusive communications and agency updates from the CEO; and
  • Breakfast with children in Sunbeam’s early childhood programs once a year.
