The mission of the Nonprofit Resource Center is to provide services, training, and resources to help nonprofits meet community needs.
We envision a strong, cohesive nonprofit community composed of successful organizations that have the financial, professional, and human resources to improve the community by successfully meeting their mission-driven goals. Through smart leadership, innovation, and integrity, these groups meet the highest standards of excellence and work collaboratively and collegially to effectively meet the area’s myriad needs. In return, they are well-respected, appreciated, and broadly supported for their positive contribution.
To support this vision, the Nonprofit Resource Center will provide outstanding service to Oklahoma's nonprofits, offering strategic counsel, reliable resources, and positive results, thereby becoming a well-respected partner in the local nonprofit community.
