GENERAL OPERATING SUPPORT GRANTS ($10,000 to $50,000)
Establishment of a General Operating Support Program is consistent with the Kirkpatrick Family Fund's commitment to strengthening the nonprofit sector in central Oklahoma. We believe that healthy nonprofit organizations share certain core strengths in their administrative, fundraising and program capacities. They may be in transition as they seek to improve in some areas, but all share a commitment to excellence in their programs and operations. When we use the term "General Operating Support" we mean the "working capital" nonprofits need to further their mission, often used by an organization to improve their administrative and fundraising capacity.
- Requests for general operations will be considered in the General Operating Support Category only, not in the Project Support category.
- Generally organizations must have received prior support from the Kirkpatrick Family Fund for multiple years to be eligible for General Operating Support.
- Eligibility assessment and post submission follow up may require interviews or conversations with staff members and members of the board of directors.
- Organizations are required to submit their General Operating Support request online. Please contact us at (405)767-3702 to request the online application Web address.
