When Craig Heffington inherited an investment account from his mother, he knew he wanted to honor her by using the funds to support charitable causes. Craig consulted two certified public accountants as well as his mother’s financial advisor, and all three recommended he establish a donor advised fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. After meeting with Joe Carter, Craig established the Heffington Family Fund, which he now uses to award grants to charitable organizations supporting children’s health care and veterans, including Smile for a Child Foundation.

Smile for a Child Foundation provides medical, educational and emotional support for Oklahoma children born with a cleft lip and palate or other craniofacial anomalies. From special feeding bottles, speech therapy, dentistry and even college scholarships, the Smile for a Child Foundation makes a positive and lasting impact on children and families in our community. None of it would be possible, however, without donors like Craig Heffington.
