A Lasting Impact in Lawton

The Lawton Community Foundation takes pride in facilitating philanthropy throughout southwest Oklahoma. Since 1999, the generosity of our donors has allowed us to reinvest $4.5 million back in to the Lawton area through scholarships, community and matching grants and endowment distributions to charitable organizations. This year, we helped enrich the programs of 19 charitable organizations by awarding $69,100 in grants and $20,000 in scholarships.

Through the pages of our 2017 Annual Report, you’ll hear from Lawton’s donors, charitable organizations and future leaders on why they love Lawton, and how important it is for our community to provide perpetual support.

We hope you will be as inspired as we are about the generosity that is shaping our community. As we look forward to 2018, we are excited to see how, by working together, we can continue to make a lasting impact on Lawton and the surrounding area.
