Communities Foundation of Oklahoma (CFO) is committed to creating Funds that help communities meet the challenges of changing times; to connecting donors with community needs in supporting the long term impact of vital community organizations; and to meeting the charitable needs of all Oklahomans in communities large and small…now and forever.

To promote community philanthropy and involvement and to strengthen charitable organizations in Oklahoma communities, the 2016 Matching Funds Programs are designed to help build and grow permanent endowment funds held at CFO. These matching programs are funded through the generosity of CFO donors.

Matching funds are available January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, on a first-come, first-served basis. Once our allocation of matching funds is depleted, the program will end for the calendar year.
