The Oklahoma City Community Foundation trustees and staff send our deepest condolences to family and friends on the passing of William “Bill” O. Johnstone.

Mr. Johnstone was a Foundation trustee from 1994-2003 and served as the chairman of the board in 1997.  He led several initiatives at the Foundation, including the Oklahoma City Disaster Relief Fund created for victims and survivors of the Murrah Building bombing.

In addition to being a leader in the banking industry, Bill Johnstone supported many civic projects, including the original sales tax campaign to support MAPS projects in Oklahoma City, as well as serving numerous charitable organizations. In 1998, Bill and Ann Johnstone established a fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation to support their charitable interests, which include the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, Allied Arts of Oklahoma, Heritage Hall and Mount Saint Mary’s high schools as well as Possibilities Inc., and OKC Educare.

Services for Bill Johnstone will be held in Oklahoma City on March 5th.
