Chickasaw Foundation considers sponsorship requests on a case-by-case basis.
Chickasaw Foundation is pleased to offer Oklahoma schools an educational, hands-on field trip to the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, OK through the Inchokkaalaali’ (I’m visiting) Assistance Request program. Students and faculty will experience a fun and educational day while learning about the history and culture of the Chickasaw people.
Funding for this program is provided in part by a grant from Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment of Humanities (NEH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
Oklahoma City Community Foundation has also generously provided grant support to fund school groups from central Oklahoma.
The Chickasaw Foundation Life Enhancement Award Program (LEAP) exists to promote partnerships with other organizations who share a mission similar to that of the Chickasaw Foundation, encourage collaborative efforts to address community needs and provide opportunities to enhance the lives of those residing within Oklahoma or communities significant to the Chickasaw Nation as determined by the Chickasaw Foundation Board of Trustees.
Proposals are considered only from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located within the United States; more specifically, our geographical focus is on Oklahoma organizations and projects. Organizations or projects out of state may be considered if sponsored by a Chickasaw citizen.
Grants will not be made to individuals or for-profit entities, or for multi-year commitments. Organizations are limited to a single award per calendar year (January-December). Awards will not exceed $10,000 and are subject to the Chickasaw Foundation’s financial position.
The Chickasaw Foundation will accept intake sheets on a rolling basis. Requests will be reviewed in a preliminary manner based on the initial intake sheet prior to the distribution of a formal grant application.
