General areas of interest
The primary focus of the Noble Foundation's granting program is on capital funding for higher education and on health research and delivery systems. Generally, the emphasis of our grantmaking is geographically focused on Oklahoma organizations and projects. The Noble Foundation will not consider requests for multi-year commitments.
Proposals are considered only from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located within the United States.
No loans or grants are available for individuals or for-profit entities.
Required letter of inquiry
Before a formal grant application will be distributed to the requesting organization (for completion and return to the Foundation), the grant seeking organization must submit a letter of inquiry. The letter (usually approximately two pages) should summarize both the organization and the project for which a grant is requested.
Letters of inquiry will be accepted until June 1, 2017. In most cases, a response indicating how the request will be handled will be sent within three weeks of receipt of the inquiry.
Letters of inquiry may be submitted via mail or e-mail to:
Mary Kate Wilson, Director of Philanthropy, Engagement and Project Management
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Inc.
2510 Sam Noble Parkway
Ardmore, Oklahoma 73401
