The Arnall Family Foundation was founded by Sue Ann Arnall with the vision to make lasting, transformative improvements to the systems and programs that serve at-risk children in our community. The Foundation has identified the overburdened, under-resourced child welfare system in Oklahoma County as a priority initiative. “I want to help those who do not have the ability to help themselves. I have chosen to focus on children who have been dealt a bad hand, either physically or socially, and on providing these children, our children, the opportunity to live a productive and fulfilling life.” – Sue Ann Arnall

To fulfill the Foundation’s stated mission, we have chosen to partner with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) and the support agencies that work in tandem with OKDHS to protect and support at risk children. We will continue to seek partnerships with fellow change makers to lead our communities toward effective solutions to our shared problems. We recognize that we must balance support for proven and effective approaches with the pursuit of new strategies that hold the promise of achieving breakthroughs.

Under the leadership of our trustee, Sue Ann Arnall, we are committed to being thoughtful stewards of the Foundation’s assets. We will strive for efficiency and effectiveness in both internal and external activities, and ensure that charitable funds will be protected in the long term, while making significant impacts today.
