Foundation HistoryImproving the quality of life of Oklahomans and beyond.

Oklahoma Flag

The Cresap Family Foundation was established in 2012 upon the final sale of the family’s business, Premium Beers of Oklahoma, one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributorships in the United States.

The family’s spirit of giving dates as far back as 1968 when a self-made auto dealer purchased a little Anheuser-Busch distributorship in Bartlesville, OK. They continue this spirit of charity today through the Cresap Family Foundation.

The Directors of the Cresap Foundation look at the needs in the communities in which they fund with a focus on helping those most in need. This is evidenced by their generous giving year by year, now totaling over $3.3 million.

Foundation Mission

The Cresap Family Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life of Oklahomans and beyond, through support of youth & families, health & wellness, education, arts & humanities and animal welfare.
