The Oklahoma City Community Foundation has announced that seven Oklahoma nonprofits will receive a total of $2,883,880 in grants through the Arnall Community Funds.
The Arnall Community Funds were established earlier this year through an $85 million gift from the Arnall Family Foundation to the Community Foundation. Since 2015, the Arnall Family Foundation has donated more than $75 million to support organizations creating lasting change. The Arnall Community Funds at the Community Foundation will continue that work, allowing the Arnall Family Foundation to focus on program development and fostering relationships with partners while benefiting from the Community Foundation’s extensive administrative and asset management experience.
“By partnering with the Community Foundation to create the Arnall Community Funds, we are able to expand our impact and quickly deploy funds to empower community partners to create lasting and transformative improvements,” said Sue Ann Arnall, founder and president of the Arnall Family Foundation. “The proven success of the programs selected for the first round of Community Fund grants is impressive, and we are excited to support their efforts to combat inequity in our society and build a stronger and more vibrant community.”
“The Community Foundation is honored to assist the Arnall Family Foundation in their mission to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma,” added Nancy Anthony, president of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. “Through their programs and grants over the past several years, they have built a reputation as a leader working to combat some of our community’s greatest challenges and we are proud to partner with them as they continue this mission.”
