The GiveSmartOKC website was very intuitive and made it easy to choose the beneficiary for my Together We Give grant. Knowing that the organizations were already vetted by the OKC Community Foundation made me comfortable when making my final decision.
Veronica Regan, Bank of Oklahoma, VP, Treasury Services
I have a family donor-advised fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation and I use GiveSmartOKC to research organizations I want to support. I review the financial trends and structure of an organization and the qualitative factors such as the depth of the leadership among the board of directors and management. An organization’s participation in GiveSmartOKC makes a statement that they are committed to four intangible areas that I greatly respect.
