Why Give Through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation?

We Keep It Simple – We handle all administration and legal requirements associated with endowments, allowing you to focus on your charitable goals.

Financial Benefits – Because we are a 501(c)(3) public charity, you receive the maximum tax benefits available for your charitable gifts.

Flexibility – We accept a variety of gifts and will customize a giving plan that fits your charitable goals.

How to Give

Give to an Existing Fund – You may give to any of the permanent endowments we administer to support charitable organizations, scholarships and awards, special purposes in the community or memorial gifts.

If establishing a fund is not the right choice for you but you’re interested in supporting the community both now and in the future, you may want to consider a charitable gift to the Fund for Oklahoma City. As an unrestricted fund, the Fund for Oklahoma City doesn’t support a specific program or project but instead allows our Trustees to respond to changing needs and opportunities in central Oklahoma.

Create Your Own Fund – Whether you want to honor a loved one’s memory, create a family legacy or simply give to the organizations you care about, we offer several fund options to help accomplish your charitable objectives.
