Our Mission


The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits is a nonprofit organization equipping and strengthening the Oklahoma nonprofit sector through training, consulting, advocacy, membership, networking and awards.

Our mission is “building better communities through effective nonprofits.”

The Standards for Excellence® clinic series is the Center’s flagship program. It is nationally-renowned and tailored to Oklahoma nonprofits, offering them an ethics and accountability model they can apply to their own organizations. Public policy and membership serves as the advocacy arm of the Center. These programs act as the unified voice of the nonprofit sector in the legislature and throughout the community.
