Other ways to donate, support or volunteer
Over the past decade, the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame (OMHF) has been a huge success, taking great pride in providing an official venue for recognition of Oklahoma's military heroes. However, in order to continue providing greater recognition of our extraordinary veterans, a sound financial base needs to be maintained.
 
Therefore, supporting individuals and organizations are being offered the opportunity to underwrite the annual event and be remembered as OMHF Founders.

Statements
Mission The Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit organization supporting our uniformed services, in particular, honoring those Oklahomans, living or deceased, who have served in the military with records of outstanding service to our nation.
Background
The Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation was founded in 1999 by Major General (retired), Douglas O. Dollar, USA. We are an IRC Section 501(c)3 organization having the purpose of honoring those Oklahomans, living or deceased, who serve or have served in the military, with records of extraordinary service to our nation. The annual induction is held every year on Veterans Day.
 
Each year the Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation selects ten Oklahomans to be inducted into the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame (OMHF) from many nominees submitted by nominators from across the country. The criteria for the rating system are threefold: (1) the military record of the individual, to include heroic and/or extraordinary leadership action, service or sacrifice, principal awards achieved; (2) civilian public service and/or patriotic service, to include civic work, service to veterans, projects influencing or motivating youth, helping the handicapped or disabled, community improvements, and leadership positions, etc; and (3) an established Oklahoma connection.
 
Since 1999 the OMHF has recognized 105 local heroes, of which 76 are officers, 27 enlisted, and 2 'other.' These distinguished military personnel include 70 Army, 10 Navy, 11 Marines, 14 Air Force, and 1 NASA. Seventeen of the 105 inductees are recipients of the Medal of Honor. Sometimes a unit is given recognition such as in 2002 when the 10th U.S. Cavalry "Buffalo Soldiers" were honored, and in 2005 when the Oklahoma Military Academy in Claremore was recognized. At the 2011 induction event, the Comanche Code Talkers will be inducted.
 
The Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation has formed an important partnership with the Oklahoma History Center. Without this partnership we would not have a base of operation. The Oklahoma History Center provides space for meetings of the OMHF Board, logistical/event planning assistance and assistance in planning for a permanent site within the Oklahoma Military History display area. The Board is comprised of dedicated volunteers who believe in honoring the extraordinary and/or heroic actions of our service men and women who have an Oklahoma connection.
 
The Oklahoma History Center is committed to establishing a permanent home located near the military display area to present all the inductees of the OMHF. This will include an interactive electronic display 'kiosk' featuring the stories of each member of the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame. Recognition received at the event from government officials/dignitaries, and from the press will be permanently recorded and displayed for public perusal when the project is completed.

Foundation Staff Comments

All prior year financial information is from IRS Form 990s.  

Note: FY2012 thru 2014:  
The Balance Sheet (page 2) section on the Form 990s for 2012 was left blank. We verified the Dec 31 bank balances to show the actual cash (line #22) for 2012 & 2014. The Net Assets (line #27) amount for 2013 and 2014 was completed on the Form 990 for 2014. 
 
Note: FY2015:
Net Assets line #19 on Form 990-EZ shows $30,447 which appears to be the same amount as FY2013.  We had changed the FY2015 Net Assets to include the net income for $4,918 (FY14) and $1,448 (FY15).
