About Us

In 1997, when the Hospice of Oklahoma County merged its operations with a local hospital, proceeds were used to establish the Hospice Foundation of Oklahoma, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. At the same time, the organization created a permanent endowment fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation to support and promote palliative and hospice care in Oklahoma.
