About UsFamily owned and operated.

The Cresap family owned and operated Anheuser-Busch distributorships from 1968 through 2011. The family has a desire to give back to the communities that supported their business for 44 years, resulting in the formation of The Cresap Family Foundation. The intent of the Foundation is to support worthy charities in Central and Northeast Oklahoma.


The DetailsSee exactly how we accomplish our goals.

  • Letter of Inquiry

    We use this step help prioritize the grants that the family has a serious desire to fund. The application is web based and user friendly throughout the entire process.

  • Grant Application

    We ask organizations to make a full application detailing financial information, board governance and program description. The board reviews these applications at their Fall meeting and makes funding decisions. We make a point to get in touch with everyone with feedback about granting decisions.

  • Follow Up

    In addition to the follow up report assigned in the online grantmaking software, nonprofits who receive grant dollars should expect a site visit. The purpose of the site visit is to show the Directors of the Foundation the great work your nonprofits are doing.
