About Potts Family Foundation

Our Mission is to provide support for sustainable early childhood initiatives and nonprofit capacity building.

Who are we?

We are a family foundation, organized as a Private Foundation with a majority of our board comprised of outside community leaders.

What do we do?

We address root causes of early childhood neglect (emotional, physical, and mental) by supporting proven solutions through early childhood initiatives (ages 0-5), We address non-profit capacity building through the management and leadership development of Oklahoma nonprofits by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits (OCN).

We collaborate with other entities to leverage people, material and dollar resources and secure greater results. We also provide annual grants in support of our priority initiatives.

Areas of focus

The Potts Family Foundation has two primary areas of focus.

The first area of focus is to increase the effectiveness of nonprofits in improving their communities. We do so through The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits (OCN). Visit their site to learn more about their work.

The second area focuses on greater investment of people and dollar resources on early childhood (pre-birth through five).  This is accomplished through the OK25by25 statewide initiative – a collaboration of businesses, nonprofits, state agencies, legislators and foundations working to raise the well being of Okahoma’s children. The goal is to raise our ranking to among that of the top 25 states in our country by 2025.

These two areas of focus are accomplished by means of: education, advocacy, collaboration, and grantmaking.
