Always all for the people

Oklahoma Panhandle Partners was founded with the desire to address the needs of cancer patients and their families in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation has given us the ability to do what we do while they take care of the business aspect of our operations. They also enable us to maintain a 501c3 charitable status. Their smiles and advice are great encouragement as we enter our second year of existence. Together, we hope to help meet the financial and cancer support needs of our growing community.

Guymon Fire Department
Before the Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation, the Guymon Firefighter’s Club took care of our own financials. The club...talked about obtaining our 501(c)(3) status, but determined it was not in our best interest when the GCEF option was made known to us. The GCEF took all of the burden out of making the transition and allows us to operate smoothly, efficiently and legally, all of which are important to us. The GCEF is a great asset to those who are looking at or already have clubs that would like to be tax exempt.
