Oklahoma's Inasmuch Foundation is awarding $5.79 million in grants to 28 organizations, all serving Oklahoma communities.
The grants include more than $1 million to KIPP Reach to expand and grow a five-school model serving over 2,500 students per year. Another $500,000 was awarded to the Kiwanis Special Activities Fund to replace the old Carver Mark Twain Head Start building with a birth-to-school continuum campus next door to the newly renovated Mark Twain Elementary.
The Inasmuch Foundation was founded in 1982 by Edith Kinney Gaylord. It supports education, health and human services and community enhancement initiatives that enrich the quality of life for Oklahomans.
Bob Ross, president and CEO of the foundation, says the diversity of its grants helps meet the various needs of the community and make the greatest impact.
