A Fund for the Future of the Oklahoma Genealogical Society
During the course of the pandemic, OGS was humbled to receive many donations that helped with our day-to-day operations. In August 2021, an anonymous donor came forward with a $12,500 donation to OGS with the expressed desire to establish a stable source of income in the form of an endowment. OGS is so thankful for their foresight and faith in our future.
In early Fall 2021, the OGS board voted to enter into an endowment with the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Click on these links for more information:
We are also pleased to announce that OGS is a grateful recipient of the Kirkpatrick Family Fund Matching Program of $15,000. This means if OGS is successful in raising $25,000 by November 1st, we will receive an additional $15,000 from the Kirkpatrick Fund.
