ENDOWMENT MATCHING GRANTS
The purpose of the Endowment Matching Grant Program is three fold: to encourage nonprofit organizations to plan for their future; develop a reliable source of funding that supports mission and program goals; and to engage a broad base of contributors from the community in the organization's future.
a. New Charitable Organization Endowment Fund
Qualified organizations who have approval to establish a new Charitable Organization Endowment Fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation may, if eligible, request a grant of $8,000 to be matched with $12,000 raised by the organization to establish the fund.
b. Established Charitable Organization Endowment Fund
Organizations with an established Charitable Organization Endowment Fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation may submit a dollar request based on the matching formula 3:1. Organizations must raise $3 for every $1 contributed by the Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
Approved organizations are required to raise the full match in a 12-month period.
Organizations submitting a request for a Matching Grant may also submit a request for either a Project Support or General Operating Support Grant during the same year or 12-month period.
Only dollars raised and given to the Charitable Organization Endowment Fund following approval of the grant request will be considered eligible for meeting the match requirement. Interest derived from a Charitable Organization Endowment Fund may not be used to provide the match for Kirkpatrick Family Fund grants.
We do not fund matching endowment grants to churches, ministries or religious programs.
