I care. I give. I help. iFund.
In 2011, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation launched three iFund grant programs: Access to Health Care, Services for the Elderly and Opportunities for Children. The funds supporting each program were made possible by generous donors with an interest in these areas. Guidelines and eligibility criteria for each grant program are based on the donor intent.
Applications are reviewed by a dedicated team of community volunteers with knowledge and expertise in each iFund grant focus area. The Oklahoma City Community Foundation Trustees approve all funding recommendations.
To learn more about the guidelines, eligibility requirements, previous grantees and important dates for each of the iFund programs, please scroll down or select the respective tab above.
In order to apply for any iFund grant, the applying organization must have a published, fully updated GiveSmartOKC profile by 5 p.m. on the date of the "Access to Apply" deadline. No exceptions.
Grants awarded to charitable organizations that provide direct services for children birth to age 14 and offer access to opportunities that otherwise would not be available.
