Welcome, The Hardesty Family Foundation, Inc. was established to benefit specific needs of the people of Tulsa, OK and the surrounding areas. As native Oklahomans, we feel an obligation to give back to the people of our State and to make the future a better place for all whom choose to call Oklahoma home. The Hardesty Family Foundation, Inc. (HFF) mission is to promote and serve 501c(3) nonprofit charitable organizations, schools, and exempt entities including but not limited to libraries, primary/secondary education, universities, aviation, research, arts & culture, civic & community, nature & environmental and health & human services through grants, loan guarantees and a broad programmatic and geographical array of Program Related Investments (PRI). It is our aim to help charitable organizations raise funds and build credit worthiness from private and commercial sources to serve public and programmatic needs and to provide points of leverage in public and private partnerships. In order to fulfill these goals it is HFF’s mission to enhance its own capital and to promote our longevity in philanthropic giving. It is our intention to sustain the foundation’s corpus in order to address a broad spectrum of societal issues for perpetuity. We do not grant to agencies that participate in illegal activities. Grants may not be used for lobbying or political endeavors.
