More than a century and a half ago, brave settlers traveled to what would become the great state of Oklahoma on horseback and by wagon. Men, women and children braved a tough road to become the masses that would settle our state and impart a unique, pioneering spirit that lives on in every Oklahoman. Our nonprofits, like those early pioneers, travel tough roads – together – to create better lives for everyone in our state.

Since 1981, our state’s charitable organizations have been blessed with some extra power for their own wagons thanks to the pioneering spirit of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. Dedicated to building better communities through effective nonprofits, our training, consultation, advocacy and recognition programs have propelled Oklahoma’s more than 16,500 organizations to better implement their missions and help the people of our state thrive.

“I recommend the Center to every nonprofit that I work with. The training opportunities, the networking, and the resources that are made available through membership are something that no nonprofit should operate without.”

- Peter Evans, Oklahoma City Police Athletic League

When nonprofits need to be heard collectively, they turn to the Center. Finally, we recognize great nonprofit leadership and operations through our “Visions Awards” and “Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence” Awards. To date, we have given nonprofits and their leaders more than a million dollars in mini-grants as recognition for excellence in the sector.
