George Kaiser Family Foundation
George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) is a charitable organization based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Type I 509(a)3 supporting organization of the Tulsa Community Foundation, dedicated to providing equal opportunity for young children in our community through investments in early childhood education, community health, social services, and civic enhancement.
Recognizing the importance of early learning opportunities, GKFF has invested heavily in expanding the availability of high-quality early childhood education for low-income children in Tulsa County and throughout the state and nation.
Oklahoma suffers some of the worst health outcomes in the country, with particularly disturbing trends in the areas of physician shortages, health disparities and life expectancy. In response, GKFF has embarked on a series of health improvement initiatives.
Social Services Safety Net
While focused on solving the problem of intergenerational poverty by addressing root inadequacies in current educational and health institutions, GKFF also spends significant time and resources on general social service support throughout Tulsa.
