Sarkeys Foundation

The Sarkeys Foundation is a private, charitable foundation, incorporated under the laws of the State of Oklahoma and  operated exclusively for providing support through gifts and grants to charitable, scientific, and educational institutions  which are qualified under section 501(c)(3) and which are not private foundations within the meaning of section 509(a) of  the Internal Revenue Service Code of 1954 or comparable sections of the Internal Revenue Service Code added at a later date.

What does Sarkeys Foundation fund?

We fund many types of programs in social or humanitarian services, arts and cultural endeavors, education, scientific research and animal welfare.
