Organizations sending multiple checks to Communities Foundation of Oklahoma should include a note verifying that all checks were received by December 31, 2017. These batch-shipments also need to arrive in our office no later than Friday, January 5, 2018.Donations falling outside of these guidelines will be acknowledged as gifts received in the 2018 calendar year.
