The Oklahoma Physical Therapy Foundation is the recognized provider of funds for physical therapy education, research and community services that positively impact Oklahomans.
Background In 2002, a group of physical therapists met to discuss how to support research, education and community programs to increase public awareness of Physical Therapy and promote the overall health and well-being of the community.  To create as many opportunities as possible, they decided to create a Foundation that would raise funds for worthy groups across the state to develop meaningful programs in their own communities.

This group shared their philosophy with other physical therapists, and the Oklahoma Physical Therapy Foundation was born in 2003.  With the support of 100 founding members, the OPTF was established as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and is run by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
Our most recent grants have been awarded to OPTA for educational speakers, Nate Waters PT Clinic in Tulsa for  uninsued care, and Amanda Porter, PT to implement an Anatomy Academy to educate children on their anatomy and health including the musculoskeletal system, heart, lungs, oral cavity, lower GI tract and nurtrition and seses and the brain. 
Our goals in 2015 to 2020 include:
1)  Continued growth of the endowment to $250,000 by 2020.
2) Focus on educational events, including a fall Continuing Education conference.
3) Establishing relationships with existing "entities" within our mission, in order to have meaningful impact.
  • Increased number and participation of Board Volunteers
  • Fundraising ideas and manpower
  • Increasing community awareness of OPTF's goals and grants awarded
  • Growing our endowment
  • Public Service and media spots to let the public know how to access Physical Therapy
Soliciting good opportunities to fund in our grant process.

Comments on Board & Governance
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments The BOD continues to focus on getting our message out to the public and to potential donors. Physical Therapists can now be seen without a physician referral and this is not widely known by the public.  We want to get this message out as a way to access care alternatively besides referral from a physician. We have had challenges in meeting our goals for growing our endowment but have a large fund raising campaign in progress and should be able to add $40,000 upon its completion in May, 2020. The Strategic Plan needs to be revisited this year with the focus on facilitating communication to the public, not just potential donors.
