In 2011, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation launched the iFund grants program with focus on three areas: Access to Health Care, Opportunities for Children and Services for Elderly. Funding for the program is available thanks to gifts from donors and by utilizing several Field of Interest Funds. To date, the program has awarded more than $2.5 million to charitable organizations serving central Oklahoma.

Grants are awarded to charitable organizations providing basic and preventive health care to individuals who would not otherwise have access to such services.

Goals & Objectives:

  • To support health care services for individuals who lack access for economic, social or geographic reasons.
  • To encourage prevention services for individuals at risk of chronic health conditions.

What projects and programs will be considered?

One-time grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations for programs that provide direct services that:

  • Provide primary, diagnostic or preventive services for individuals without access to medical, dental or mental health services.
    • This would include prescription drugs and other treatments provided under the supervision of a health or mental health clinic.
  • Provide home health care and palliative care for individuals who can be cared for in a home setting and who are without access to health insurance or other support for palliative care.
  • Provide screening and evaluation services for early detection or prevention of chronic or serious medical conditions.
  • Provide therapeutic services for patients with Parkinson’s disease or severe arthritic conditions.

 Projects that reduce the need for future services are welcomed.

  • Any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides direct health care services and has a governing board based in the central Oklahoma area is eligible to apply.
  • Grants may be made for existing or new direct service programs.
  • The programs should target populations who otherwise do not have access to services.
    • Individuals who qualify for other programs would be a lower priority.
  • Programs should be generally open and not restricted by residency or membership. 
  • Previous grantees can re-apply for additional funding if program was successfully completed AND proposed goals were achieved.
  • In order to streamline the application process, applicants will be required to have a current GiveSmartOKC profile.
    • For those applicants that do not have a published GiveSmartOKC, please contact the program manager toward completing one prior to requesting access to the application.


  • Priority will be given to projects that leverage other resources and that demonstrate cooperation between two or more organizations.


  • No multiple year funding commitments will be made. 
  • No grants will be made for capital campaigns, fund-raising events, research projects, and the purchase of vehicles or for clinical equipment or facility construction.
  • Lower priority will be given to support administrative needs such as occupancy, communications, computer equipment and overhead.
