I care. I give. I help. iFund.

In 2011, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation launched the iFund grant program. Since then, it’s expanded to include Access to Health Care, Services for the Elderly, Opportunities for Children and Culture and Community grants. The funds supporting each program were made possible by generous donors with an interest in these areas. Guidelines and eligibility criteria for each grant program are based on the donor intent.

Applications are reviewed by a dedicated team of community volunteers with knowledge and expertise in each iFund grant focus area. The Oklahoma City Community Foundation Trustees approve all funding recommendations.

To learn more about the guidelines, eligibility requirements, previous grantees and important dates for each of the iFund programs, please scroll down or select the respective tab above.

In order to apply for any iFund grant, the applying organization must have a published, fully updated GiveSmartOKC profile by 5 p.m. on the date of the “Access to Apply” deadline. No exceptions.

Services for the Elderly iFund

The Services for Elderly iFund program was designed to support organizations that provide direct services to the elderly (65+ years) which enable seniors to live independently in their home. Other services for seniors include activities that promote wellness and recreational opportunities, thus encouraging health and reducing social isolation.
