Our Charitable Work
The Tinker Spouses’ Club (TSC) is a non-profit, social and philanthropic organization committed to enriching the lives of local military families, by providing welfare, grants, and educational scholarships to military dependents and spouses.
TSC provides funding for organizations that further the common good and general welfare of Tinker AFB personnel, military dependents, and the military community at large, including civilian workforce and families in the greater Oklahoma City area. We support organizations that encourage and develop good character, assist with the needy, and support tax-exempt organizations which provide family services such as counseling, child care, and special needs.
