The Montereau Charitable Funds were established when the community opened in 2003 to support Montereau residents in times of need and to make improvements to the community.
Giving of time and funding is a Montereau principle set by our founder, William K. Warren, whose generosity is renowned in and around Tulsa. Today, both residents and staff maintain Mr. Warren’s legacy by contributing to nearly 100 charitable organizations. Our charitable spirit is particularly notable in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. In 2017, Team Montereau raised more than $243,000 in Tulsa’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, placing our community in the Top 5 donors nationwide. In the past five years, Montereau’s support of the Alzheimer’s Association totals more than $500,000 in residents, staff and corporate giving.
Since volunteer-hour reporting began in 2016, approximately 200 Montereau residents have volunteered more than 19,500 hours of their time to serve area nonprofit organizations. The time donated by Montereau volunteers is estimated at $445,817, making Montereau one of Tulsa’s most generous philanthropic communities.

The Benevolent Fund furthers Montereau’s mission of caring for older adults by providing the means to ensure that Montereau residents can access the full continuum of care available at Montereau throughout their lifetimes, regardless of changes in health status or the ability to pay for services. Through the Benevolent Care Fund, Montereau grants confidential financial assistance to residents.
The Memorial Fund supports projects that enhance the Montereau community beyond what is covered in the annual operating budget, and assists other not-for-profit organizations when designated by Montereau residents. Gifts are often made in memory of a loved one or in tribute to a family member or friend.
Through generous charitable donations from residents and their families, the Legacy Program has funded numerous projects on the Montereau campus that “lift the spirit” and provide a lasting legacy for the community. Examples include stained glass windows, the mosaic cross, organ and many elements of the Warren Chapel at Montereau, as well as sculptures, fountains, benches, landscaping, an aquarium, aviary, and the Freedom Circle honoring America’s veterans.
Nearly 200 individuals, businesses and organizations donated to Montereau during a two-year period in support of the Montereau Charitable Funds. Because Montereau is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit, all charitable donations are tax-deductible.
