Grants Available for Lawton Area Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations from Lawton and the surrounding area are invited to apply for two grant opportunities from the Lawton Community Foundation.

Community Grants of up to $5,000 each are available for projects designed to improve the quality of life and provide opportunities for a broad range of Lawton area citizens. Qualified nonprofit organizations, as well as state and local government entities, are eligible to apply.

Matching Grants will also be awarded to charitable organizations with endowment funds at the Lawton Community Foundation, or those interested in establishing an endowment fund. Eligible organizations must provide programs primarily benefiting southwest Oklahoma. Applying organizations are required to raise $5,000 to receive a matching grant of $2,500-$5,000.

All grant applications must be submitted online by July 1, 2019. Interested organizations can gain access to applications by emailing a brief explanation of your project to Jennifer Stewart. Learn more.
