Oklahoma Policy Institute (OK Policy) is a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) public charity, independent policy think-tank. It was launched in early 2008, growing out of work that had previously been conducted by the public policy department of Community Action Project of Tulsa County.  Now statewide, OK Policy maintains several helpful resources including the Oklahoma County stats database and factsheets

Make-A-Wish-Oklahoma exists with a mission to grant the wishes of Oklahoma children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  The greatest misconception about Make-A-Wish is that all of the children we serve are terminally ill... this is not true.  While all of our Wish Kids are facing life-threatening illness at the time of their referral, many of our kids survive their illnesses and go on to lead normal healthy lives.  

Make-A-Wish Oklahoma granted 143 wishes last year and more than 2,500 since 1982!  We serve all 77 Oklahoma counties.  The average wish costs $11,100.
