Establish a Scholarship Fund

The Oklahoma City Community Foundation administers more than 120 endowed scholarship funds that support more than 700 individual awards each academic year. We work with a variety of donors that either contribute to existing scholarship funds or create endowments that meet their goals.

If you are considering establishing a fully endowed scholarship fund that is uniquely named such as those listed on our Scholarship Directory at to see if you can accomplish your charitable goals through an existing endowment. A fully endowed and uniquely named scholarship fund requires a minimum balance of $40,000. This amount can be accumulated over time and come from more than one donor. Named funds to support scholarships awarded through existing Trustee Scholarship Initiative programs may be endowed with a minimum of $20,000.
