O’Reilly Gives Nearly $660,000 to 34 Local Charities

Since 2017, the O’Reilly Charity Golf Classic tournaments have raised and distributed $3.4 million.

O’Reilly Automotive has expanded its charitable efforts since hosting its first small golf tournament in 1999.

Now, the company organizes two annual golf tournaments, supporting numerous charities in the Springfield, Missouri, area, where O’Reilly is headquartered.

On Nov. 16, O’Reilly Auto Parts distributed grants totaling more than $600,000 to 34 local nonprofit organizations.

The grants were awarded to a diverse range of charities, addressing needs such as disability support, mental health services, youth mentoring and emergency-shelter provision. The beneficiaries include organizations such as The Arc of the Ozarks, Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Child Advocacy Center and many others. Each charity received funds to support various operational or capital needs.

Julie Gray, vice president of corporate services at O’Reilly, expressed the company’s commitment to community support.

“This is one of the highlights of our year,” Gray said. “Giving back is deeply ingrained in our culture. A lot of people work hard to make our golf tournaments a success each year, and it’s all worth it when we see the difference those dollars will make to the people our community’s nonprofits serve. It drives us to try to raise even more, year after year.”

Since 2017, the Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO) has facilitated the grant applications and managed the funds. Since the partnership began, the O’Reilly Charity Golf Classic tournaments have raised and distributed $3.4 million.

O’Reilly Auto Parts extended gratitude to the suppliers, vendors and team members who sponsor and support the annual golf tournaments, making these significant contributions to local nonprofits possible.
