Covid-19 Response Disaster Relief Funds

The Oklahoma City Community Foundation has created the 2020 Disaster Relief Fund that will assist those in our community impacted by the virus, particularly those who are most vulnerable. The fund is flexible and will provide dollars for nonprofits, churches, government agencies and schools providing direct services and assistance to individuals who have been impacted by COVID-19.

In addition, the Kirkpatrick Foundation and Oklahoma City Community Foundation have established the Oklahoma Disaster Fund for Animal Support to mitigate the financial impact of disaster on charitable nonprofits that provide care for animals.

Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Tree Canopy Assessment

In 2019, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation teamed up with the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) and Oklahoma Forestry Services to commission the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Tree Canopy Assessment. Conducted by Davey Resource Group, the project provides baseline data for managing the city’s urban forest through a comprehensive, 536-square-mile study of tree canopy in the Oklahoma City Metro area. The final report and accompanying geocoded maps illustrate how trees provide environmental, functional and aesthetical benefits to parks, trails, schools, watershed and neighborhoods throughout our communities. This data will help shape our community’s approach to beautification, quality of life and environmental sustainability including air quality and stormwater runoff planning, as well as the location and type of trees that should be considered for planting going forward.
