You may not know Oklahoma City ranks 7th nationally for most generous citizens: Here's a profile of two OK foundations that focus on local giving.
"Ken Levit is the Executive Director of the Tulsa-based George Kaiser Family Foundation. He says what makes philanthropy unique in Oklahoma is that many of the large foundations focus on state issues, rather than national or regional problems. 'I don't know quite what's in the water here that makes our billionaires, our wealthy folks, want to solve Oklahoma problems, but it's a good result,' Levit says. 'I hope for all those future billionaires out there invest their money back in Oklahoma.'" -- Brian Hardzinski, KGOU.org
