Help us make a difference in the lives of Oklahomans
The Oklahoma Physical Therapy Foundation helps advance the field of physical therapy by providing funding for research, education, and community services.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the Oklahoma Physical Therapy Foundation enables us to continue grant programs that make a difference in the lives of physical therapists and individuals who need physical therapy services.
Through the years, OPTF has awarded more than $60,000 in grant funding. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, your support helps us continue to provide grants for individuals and organizations to advance the field of physical therapy.
The Oklahoma Physical Therapy Foundation endowment fund is managed by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Your contributions are added to a well-managed fund that earns interest so your donation can have an even greater impact. Matching funds may also be available to help your contribution grow even more.
Donations may be made in honor of or in memory of friends and loved ones. Perhaps you would like to honor a physical therapist who has impacted your life or a loved one who benefited from physical therapy?

How your donation is used
Our foundation is run by an all-volunteer board of individuals who are passionate about the field of physical therapy. We intentionally keep our overhead low to ensure that most donations go directly into our endowment fund for grants that have a direct impact on research, education, and community services.
Approximately 1% of funds go toward administrative costs, including printing and postage, and 9% of funds go toward fundraising expenses. The remaining 90% of funds go to our endowment to provide funding for our grant programs.
