Our new website is coming soon.

The Grace and Franklin Bernsen Foundation was created in 1968 to provide grants in support of religious, charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes, or for the prevention of cruelty to children. By policy, the Foundation limits its grants to non-profit organizations in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma, the home of Grace and Franklin Bernsen for more than six decades.

In October, our friend and long-time administrator Margaret Skyles passed away. This has left a considerable hole in our personal and professional lives. We ask for your understanding and patience as we work to catch-up on numerous projects postponed because of her illness and death.

Frequent visitors will notice that we are building a new web site. Gradually, we will add to the information presented here. We will work to keep you posted on our progress and programs.

Thank You,
