Fundraising for OKC Non-Profit Organizations Can Mean Extra Grant Money

The foundation recently purchased a former elementary school and plans to convert it into a community center.  Alpha Community Foundation is the nonprofit arm of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, which has been in the Oklahoma City community since 1938 providing young people with support and mentorship, said Chairman George Williams. While the organization works through civic engagement, wellness, service, and educational outreach, Williams says educational outreach through mentoring programs, such as the Alpha Boys Institute, are the flagship initiatives.

In 2020, Oklahoma City’s Positive Tomorrows received $17,500 and Allied Arts of Oklahoma was awarded $10,000. While neither of those organizations is participating in 2021, RIVERSPORT Foundation, a recipient of $5,000 in 2020, is taking part along with five additional nonprofits.  More:4 local nonprofits awarded Gannett Foundation grants

Any funds raised will go directly to the school’s renovations and maintenance. The center will become a hub within the city to meet the needs of a historically underserved community, Williams said. “This will allow us to grow those programs that we currently have, it will allow us to partner with other community organizations that are doing great work in the community that don’t currently have space,” he said.
