Giving Through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation: Why It Makes Sense
Because we are a 501(c)(3) public charity, gifts to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation receive the maximum tax benefits allowed.
We Keep It Simple
By establishing a fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, you can avoid administrative burdens, legal complexities and compliance requirements associated with private foundations.
We are able to accept a wide variety of gifts including cash, appreciated stocks, mutual funds and other marketable securities, life insurance policies, retirement plan assets and business-related assets such as closely held stock from S corp., C corp. and LLCs.
Because we administer more than 1,000 funds coupled with our own administrative endowment, we are able to offer a wide range of services at a much lower cost when compared to operating a private foundation or similar entities.
We Know Oklahoma City and central Oklahoma
Since our founding in 1969, we have worked with thousands of donors and hundreds of nonprofit organizations to improve our community. We have identified and addressed issues and opportunities.
