The Great Idea Challenge

The Great Idea Challenge is a celebration of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s 50th anniversary and the momentum caused by our founder, John E. Kirkpatrick, who had the courage to believe in Oklahoma City. In the spirit of Mr. Kirkpatrick’s ingenuity, we launched a competitive grant process in 2018 seeking bold and innovative community projects that will impact Oklahoma City and central Oklahoma throughout the next 50 years.

Nearly 100 ideas were submitted to The Great Idea Challenge and ultimately six projects were chosen for funding. In total, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation is awarding $1 million to fund the following great ideas!

Stay tuned for the BIG REVEAL coming Jan. 9!
