Northeast OKC Nonprofit Incubator
The Northeast OKC Nonprofit Incubator (“Incubator”) is a 13-week experience designed to increase the capacity of Black-led organizations and those working in Northeast Oklahoma City, which will in turn benefit the communities they serve. The Program is part of a larger effort to create sustainable and inclusive economic development in Oklahoma City’s Northeast sector.
The Incubator is for nonprofits which are Black-led or those focused on improving opportunities and services for residents of Northeast Oklahoma City. By providing training in the critical areas of nonprofit management, governance, and fundraising, and by assisting them in strategic planning, mentoring, and connecting them to Oklahoma City’s philanthropic leadership, these nonprofits will be on a path to sustainability and growth, which will benefit their constituencies for decades to come.
Thank you for your interest in the Incubator. Applications are now closed. If you missed the deadline for Cohort 2, please be on the lookout for information for Cohort 3, which will open Summer 2024.
