Who We Are
Oklahoma Policy Institute (OK Policy) is a non-partisan independent policy think-tank. It was launched in early 2008, growing out of work that had previously been conducted by the public policy department of Community Action Project of Tulsa County.
OK Policy promotes adequate, fair, and fiscally responsible funding of public services and expanded opportunity for all Oklahomans by providing timely and credible information, analysis, and ideas.
In our efforts to promote equitable, responsible, and sustainable fiscal and economic policies, OK Policy collaborates with two national networks of state-level policy research organizations, the State Priorities Partnership and the Economic Analysis and Research Network (EARN).
We also play a leading role in two Oklahoma coalitions. Together OK is a nonpartisan coalition of businesses, organizations, and citizens coming together to advocate for responsible budget and tax policies. The Oklahoma Assets Network is a diverse coalition of individuals and organizations that promotes measures to help all Oklahomans build stronger financial foundations.
OK Policy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We do not receive funding from federal, state, or local government.
Our work is supported by grants from national and local foundations, including the following:
- Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation
- Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
- Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation
- Cherokee Nation Businesses
- First Nations Development Institute
- FRAC (Food Research and Action Center)
- George Kaiser Family Foundation
- Jack and Maxine Zarrow Foundation
- MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger
- Stoneman Family Foundations
OK Policy is also grateful for the contributions we receive from hundreds of individuals, organizations, and businesses in Oklahoma. You can help support OK Policy by making a tax-deductible contribution from our online donation page or by mailing a check to:
