The Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Awards is an annual gala dedicated to honoring the outstanding work of Oklahoma nonprofits statewide. Featuring a seated dinner, a special awards ceremony, a video presentation highlighting the finalists and the Honorable George and Donna Nigh serving as the honorary chairs, the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits brings together the best nonprofits in the state to honor them for their excellence and dedication. The event also serves as the primary fundraising event for the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, and its success enables the Center to do even more for communities throughout Oklahoma.
