The Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s Community Grants program, made possible by generous donors, has invested in our community’s most pressing needs for decades. The program has expanded to include grants supporting Opportunities for Children, Access to Health Care, Parks and Public Spaces, Culture and Community and Services for Older Adults.
