Charitable Contributions

Focused giving

BOK Financial and the BOKF Foundation contribute an average of $6 million to more than 600 nonprofit organizations each year. Our giving is focused on enhancing the quality of life and economic wellbeing in the communities where we operate in Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Our charitable contributions are focused on four pillars of giving.
BOK presents Tulsa Dream Center with check for $5K charitable contribution.

Pillars of giving

  • Basic needs

    We provide volunteer and financial support to organizations serving the most vulnerable members of our community. Our efforts largely focus on organizations providing direct services addressing such issues as poverty, hunger, healthcare, housing and safety.
  • Education

    An equitable, robust educational system drives long-term community growth. We support local nonprofits whose primary mission is promoting basic education, including public school foundations, early childhood education, financial literacy, and institutions of higher education.
  • Economic development

    Actions that raise the standard of living and economic health of our communities make them better places to live and work. We provide support to local chambers of commerce; nonprofits focused on workforce development, job training, etc.; and public/private partnerships investing in our communities.
  • United Way four pillars icon

    United Way
