Strengthening communities

One of our key core values is "Actively advance the communities we serve." We are focused on improving the quality of life in the communities where we do business because we believe the most successful companies are the ones that are the most active in providing their support.
  • Charitable contributions
    BOK Financial and the BOKF Foundation contribute an average of $6 million to more than 600 nonprofit organizations each year.
  • Community service
    Sometimes the best gift we can give is our time and talent. By lending our expertise, we empower our community partners to develop meaningful business strategies, effective fund raising initiatives, sound financial planning and more.
  • Community development
    Beyond providing financial solutions, BOK Financial is committed to strengthening the communities we serve through grants and contributions.

A letter from our CEO

As a financial services company with operations focused across eight states, we know how to think big, helping individuals and families, small businesses and large corporations succeed and thrive. But despite our regional presence and national capabilities, some of our most important work happens on a much smaller scale—with our neighbors and communities.

Through financial contributions and the generosity of our employees giving their time and talent, our company continues to make a significant impact in the communities we serve. We support initiatives that enhance educational opportunities in our communities, invest in economic development through our local chambers of commerce and teach financial literacy through our Learn for Life program.

We volunteer, serve on boards and give financial support to a variety of organizations that serve the most vulnerable citizens in our communities by addressing issues in areas of basic needs, education and economic development.

In recent years, we have leaned in to support efforts to build resilience and economic mobility for local underserved minority communities by sharpening our focus and accelerating resources to help bridge the gap in four key areas of income inequality, education and mentoring, workforce development, and social justice reform.

The communities we serve are where we live, recreate and raise our families. I hope you enjoy reading our employees’ stories of serving alongside organizations in many different ways. Serving our community is more than a commitment—it's our culture.
