Please Give to the OMA Endowment in Support of the Kirkpatrick Family Fund Endowment Matching Grant


We are so pleased to announce the Kirkpatrick Family Fund has offered the Oklahoma Museums Association an Endowment Matching Grant. As OMA turns 50 this year, we are committed to raise $10,500 and in turn, the Kirkpatrick Family Fund will match it with $3,500. The OMA endowment is held at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. The endowment began in 1996 when Mr. John E. Kirkpatrick offered OMA a matching grant to establish an endowment fund to ensure that OMA had income to support our mission to assist Oklahoma museums with their efforts to educate, inform and entertain in perpetuity. Currently our endowment balance is just over $130,000.

We love museums and we know you do too. We ask that you please consider giving an endowment gift which will be matched. Endowment funds are invested for long-term growth and eventually give back more than is put into them. In this way, your gift today will give back forever. You can give back forever by clicking here:  If you prefer, you may send a check for the endowment as well. Please make the check payable to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation and mail to OCCF, PO Box 1146, OKC OK 73101-1146. In the memo line, please write fbo Oklahoma Museums Association. Your tax receipt will be acknowledged by OCCF.

OMA is very appreciative of the lead matching gift from Museum of the Red River in Idabel, Oklahoma. Henry Moy, the Quintus H. Herron Director of the Museum of the Red River, is a long-time supporter of the OMA endowment and understands its importance for long-term financial stability.  

Endowment is a great way for you to know that a larger gift will be spent wisely. Your gift will have a lasting impact, eventually far surpassing the amount of your original gift. To learn even more about leaving a legacy for the Oklahoma Museums Association, contact OMA Executive Director Brenda Granger at today.

The invested endowment fund is a permanent fund that awards grants back to our organization each year to support such items as museum training, advocacy and more. This endowment fund ensures the Oklahoma Museums Association will have a permanent source of funding every year.
