As part of its mission, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s Community Programs addresses specific opportunities and issues in central Oklahoma and provides support through programs and grants for organizations to address these issues in effective ways. Currently, we administer the following Community Programs:
The Charitable Organization Endowment (COE) Program offers key services and resources to the more than 300 nonprofit groups who participate in the program. In addition to providing fund management and administration, gift facilitation and development, the COE organizations can apply for Basic Operational Grants and Sustainable Organization Support Grants to assist in enhancing their capacity and ability to be effective organizations. For a current list of these organizations, please visit Central Oklahoma Charities.
