The Oklahoma Academy
is a statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership organization founded by Governor Henry Bellmon in 1967 to bring public attention to policy issues, provide objective, thorough research and act as a catalyst for positive change.

The mission of the Oklahoma Academy is to identify issues facing Oklahoma, provide well-researched, objective information, foster nonpartisan collaboration, develop responsible recommendations, and encourage community and legislative action.

The Vision of the Oklahoma Academy is to empower Oklahomans to improve their quality of life through effective public policy development and implementation.

The Bellmon Legacy Fund Campaign seeks to build a $3 million endowment fund that would:

  • Expand research on public policy issues prior to and after the Town Hall
  • Provide scholarships to the Town Hall for university students, young professionals and small business professionals
  • Improve Oklahoma Academy efforts to share the Town Hall results and build citizen consensus via listening sessions, outreach events and regional membership meetings.

Please join us in hornoring Governor Bellmon's legacy and supporting the future of the Oklahoma Academy with your gift to this campaign.
