Donna Nigh Foundation

Donna Nigh Foundation


The Donna Nigh Foundation administered through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, was
established as a bridge between the public and private sector to help with programs that government agencies are unable to provide. The Foundation works closely with state agencies to provide a network of supports. The Foundation provides adaptive equipment, which allows Oklahomans with developmental disabilities to push their boundaries and gain independence.
