OKC Community Foundation awards disaster relief grants to local groups


The Oklahoma City Community Foundation completed its latest round of disaster relief grants to Central Oklahoma agencies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In June, grants totaling $100,000 went to four agencies benefiting vulnerable populations affected by the pandemic, according to a press release.

The agencies that received portions of the June grants were the Latino Community Development Agency; Boys and Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County; Sunbeam Family Service; and Health Alliance for the Uninsured, according to the release.

The foundation has used donations to the 2020 Disaster Relief Fund to fund grants worth $485,750 to 14 Central Oklahoma agencies, according to the release.

“We are grateful to the Community Foundation’s Trustees and donors who have supported our disaster relief efforts,” said Nancy Anthony, president of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. “Those contributions have helped organizations that are on the front line of the fight against COVID-19, helping children, the elderly, the homeless and others suffering hardships amid this pandemic.”
