Women's Foundation of Oklahoma Annual Grant Cycle

Established in 2003, the Women’s Foundation of Oklahoma advocates positive change for Oklahoma women and girls. Committed to providing ongoing support to low-income single mothers working to complete their post-secondary education, the WFO grant is available to Oklahoma institutions of higher education to use for services and events for their single mother population. This can include, but is not limited to: tangible items such as food, backpacks and baby supplies, but also for the services that can’t be quantified—such as mentoring, tutoring and even child care. These are all tools that single mothers desperately need when advancing their education, their life, and their futures. The deadline to apply is Monday, March 30.

Donor Advised Funds 

  • Our Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) do not currently accept unsolicited grant requests. Instead, our team of professionals works closely with DAF advisors to identify specific interests and conduct necessary due diligence before grant decisions are finalized.  We are eager to share brief updates of charitable work through our Oklahoma Stories blog.  If your nonprofit organization would like to be included in future blog posts, please send your mission statement, a photo or video link, and a compelling paragraph about your organization's accomplishments to Teresa Rose Crook, Executive Director, via email.
