Giving now can include gifts of cash but also gifts of goods and services. We encourage you to first review the Statements and Search Criteria tab on a nonprofit's profile to see if the organization has listed any immediate or ongoing needs. You can also visit the nonprofit's website for information on giving directly either with a credit card or cash gift. Links to the organization's website is in the navigation on left side of the profile.
Many of the nonprofit organizations included in GiveSmartOKC also have permanent endowment funds administered by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. These endowments provide an annual source of income for the organizations and will do so into perpetuity. Organizations with endowment funds will have a link in their profile's left navigation that you can click to make a secure online gift to the endowment. You may also want to consider making a gift to a charitable organization with a planned gift from your estate. Planned gifts include bequests, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, retirement plan assets, and several types of trusts. You can learn more about these types of gifts by visiting www.occflegacy.org
