Who uses GiveSmartOKC?

The General Public

How many times have you thought to yourself, “Someday, I would like to make a difference in my community and support a local charity, but I have no idea where to even begin!”

Perhaps you have a passion for a particular cause – like helping children or serving the elderly. You might be interested in donating to the arts or to animal welfare organizations.

Maybe it’s time to turn that someday into today!

The GiveSmartOKC platform is designed to encourage informed charitable giving. It contains information about more than 300 local charitable organizations, including their programs, leadership, financials and how to support that charity.

You can search for charities by the geographical area you want to impact or specific nonprofit sectors that interest you.
