The Kerr Foundation, Inc. is inviting proposals for its grant program to identify and support 501(c)(3) organizations and institutions that provide new or enhanced opportunities for those within granting areas, particularly the young.
The Foundation believe this is the best accomplished in the areas of education, health, cultural development and community service.
While preference is given to Oklahoma organizations and institutions, they recognize those located outside the state and region can also have a beneficial impact on the economic, social and cultural growth and development of Oklahoma.
Therefore, they will also accept grant requests from Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico and Texas. In recognizing the significant and continuing influence of the Federal government on their state and region, they will also accept proposals from the Washington D.C. area; however, Oklahoma organizations will receive first priority for available funds.
