Expansion in Northeast Oklahoma City

Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County

Award Date: February 15, 2024
Awarded: $1,600,000
Arnall Community Fund Award

Boys and Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County (BGCOKC) provides multi-dimensional, evidence-based programs in academic enrichment, socio-emotional wellness, college & career prep, sports, music, financial literacy, STEAM and more. This grant will allow BGCOKC to purchase the buildings and associated land that currently houses its Northeast Club. This will allow BGCOKC to greatly expand the number of youth served in a more fiscally responsible manner. This grant also allows BGCOKC to leverage ARPA funding that can only be used for new construction or renovation, but not property purchase. Expansion projects include a new gymnasium that is greatly needed in this community, a parking lot, and a parent drive-through lane. Longer-term expansion plans include renovating the north building to add a teen center for high school students.

The Arnall Community Funds are administered through Oklahoma City Community Foundation (OCCF) and provide grants to nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Oklahoma that are working to improve outcomes for individuals, children and families involved with animal welfare and in the child welfare and criminal justice systems. The OCCF staff will manage the grant administration process and all grantmaking decisions will be made by OCCF Trustees. Learn more about the process.
