Mission The mission of the Oklahoma City Community College Foundation is to benefit, support, and enhance the programs of OCCC and to have a transformative impact on the lives of our students and our community.
The Oklahoma City Community College Foundation was formed in 1998 as a non-profit, tax exempt organization to raise funds for support of our students and our College. 
Since 1972, Oklahoma City Community College has impacted the lives of millions of students, businesses and community members. With our ever-increasing enrollment of 22,000 students per year, diverse academic programs and class schedules, nationally recognized faculty and staff and our new and existing partnerships, we continue to create great educational opportunities for our students and this community.
With a growing enrollment and exciting academic programs, there is an even greater need for charitable giving from the private sector. There are many options available for individuals, corporations and foundations that wish to make an investment in the Foundation and the College.
Over the past year, the OCCC Foundation has secured over $100,000 in scholarship money, awarded over $85,000 in scholarships to 200 students, and helped secure funding for the construction of a new 1,100-seat Performing Arts Theater. Goals for the current year include funding and awarding more student scholarships and garnering financial support for the Capitol Hill Center Renovation Campaign.
The OCCC Foundation's most pressing needs include financial support for Student Scholarships, financial support for the Capitol Hill Center Renovation Campaign, unrestricted financial support, and financial support for a new 1,100-seat Performing Arts Theater.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
With the fourth largest enrollment of any university or college in Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Community College provides one of the most affordable options for higher education in the state, yet many of our students (or potential students) face financial circumstances which, without scholarships, would not allow them the educational opportunity they seek.
A recent study shows that within the first year after earning a degree or certificate, OCCC graduates earn more than graduates from the University of Oklahoma over the same time span. Our mission at the OCCC Foundation is to help provide opportunities for students who might not otherwise have a chance to reach their educational goals and go on to contribute in meaningful ways, economic and otherwise, to our community.

Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) recently hired Mr. Von Allen as the college’s chief development officer and executive director of the OCCC Foundation.

Allen is a veteran fundraiser who most recently served as the president and CEO of the United Way of Norman. Before that, he was the director of development for the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and was previously the director of development at OU’s College of Arts and Sciences in Norman.

With over a decade of experience in higher education development, Allen is eager to begin fundraising work at OCCC. “Today, more than ever, our state needs a strong economy that comes from educational opportunities that are relevant, rigorous, accessible, affordable and convenient,” said Allen. “I’m glad to be at OCCC.”

The chief development officer is responsible for fundraising efforts on behalf of the college and its foundation in addition to overseeing the development office. This team engages alumni, friends, businesses and foundations to invite them to invest in the future of OCCC’s students and the community.

Allen started work July 24, 2017. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma and is a graduate of Western Heights High School in south Oklahoma City. He and his wife, Chris, recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and are longtime Norman residents.
