Arvest Foundation: Enriching Our Communities
Enriching Our Communities
The primary purpose of the Arvest Foundation is to support local organizations doing outstanding work to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.
Through our grant program, the Arvest Foundation helps worthwhile charitable activities in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas.
A variety of nonprofit organizations in our communities qualify for support through the Arvest Foundation. Governmental units, educational and charitable 501(c)(3) organizations, with "public charity" status as defined by the IRS, that serve public purposes to improve the same community as their recommending bank are eligible to receive contributions.
The Arvest Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for funding. All donations are based on recommendations from local Arvest Bank leadership.
Funding for the Arvest Foundation is made possible by shareholders. Board members of Arvest Bank serve as board members and officers of the Arvest Foundation.
