About the Kirkpatrick Foundation
The Kirkpatrick Foundation is one of the oldest private philanthropies in Oklahoma. In 1955, the Kirkpatrick Foundation was founded by John and Eleanor Kirkpatrick with a mission to support arts, culture, education, animal well-being, environmental conservation and historic preservation, primarily in central Oklahoma.
The Kirkpatrick Foundation distributes approximately $3 million annually in grants and charitable activities and has given more than $65 million to these organizations to date.
The Kirkpatrick Foundation’s three philanthropic platforms (primarily in central Oklahoma) are:
- Safe & Humane
Grant-making addresses diverse needs in the areas of:
- Arts & Culture
- Animal Well-Being
- Environmental Conservation
- Historic Preservation
Safe & Humane
In 2012, the Kirkpatrick Foundation started the Safe & Humane initiative, with the goal of making Oklahoma the safest and most humane place to be an animal in the United States by 2032.
