Our Vision

As Infant Crisis Services celebrates 40 years of service in 2024, we are excited to announce a special 40th Birthday endowment fund. Since 1984, our mission has remained unchanged: to provide food, formula, and diapers to babies and toddlers in need. Unfortunately, Oklahoma continues to rank poorly on a national level in terms of child well-being. However, Infant Crisis Services is in a unique position to make a difference. By bolstering this endowment, Infant Crisis Services ensures our long-term ability to meet the growing needs and strengthen the state for years to come. This will alleviate the burden on families facing crises and contribute to the well-being on children in Oklahoma. The purpose of this campaign is to provide ongoing support for the increasing needs of children in Oklahoma. By strengthening our endowment, Infant Crisis Services will be able to extend our services and and ensure long-term sustainability.

The Growing Need

The number of infants and toddlers needing services is expanding at an annual growth rate of 9% per year! If this rate continues, Infant Crisis Services will be serving 40,000 infants and toddlers annually by 2030. The creation of this endowment will allow us to grow and meet the growing needs of our community in a sustainable manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an endowment fund?

An endowment fund is money invested to generate revenue for our programs. The principal value of the endowment fund is kept intact while the investment earnings can be usable dollars to contribute to annual fundraising goals.

Who manages the Infant Crisis Services endowment?

The Infant Crisis Services endowment is managed by the Bank of Oklahoma.

Why donate to an endowment instead of a general operating fund?

When you donate to an endowment, your initial donation is never spent. This means your one-time gift will continue to benefit our tiny clients for years to come.

What is the fundraising goal for this endowment fund?

Infant Crisis Services aims to raise $4 million throughout the first phase of this campaign, however, the sky is the limit. More dollars in the endowment means more dollars invested, ultimately leading to an increase in the amount of sustainable, “forever” funding for our programs.

Yes! You can receive charitable tax benefits upon making your donation.
