Get Involved

To sustain the heart of the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation's mission, we need you. And with so many ways to give back with the OHF, it's easy to find something that works for your budget and schedule.

Support Foundation Events
Your support and contributions allow the OH&LA to support the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation’s goal of enhancing hospitality education, student access, and scholarships. Consider investing in Oklahoma's youth and the future success of the industry! View our Foundation events here.

Donate
The tax-deductable contributions individuals and companies give to the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation can change the lives of Oklahoma youth inspired by the foodservice industry. Your financial gift will directly impact students pursuing careers within the restaurant and hospitality fields. We've made it easier than ever to donate online!

Volunteer
There’s no better way to understand the power and potential of the Foundation than spending time with hospitality students in the classroom, or opening your place of business to serve as classroom for a day. Take a look at the variety of volunteering opportunities OH&LA offers to consider what best suits you:

Be a guest speaker
Guest speakers give students a glimpse at what working in the restaurant business is all about. Spend one or more class periods in a classroom sharing your personal career journey, perspective on the industry or providing an overview on a specific topic.

Host a field trip site
Accommodate and lead a group of as many as 25 students for a tour of your facility. Field trips typically last one-and-a-half hours to three hours, depending on if lunch is provided.

Host job shadowing
Open your doors to a student or a small group of students for a half or full shift. Students will shadow various key positions within the organization to gain a well-rounded perspective of what working in the business entails.

Provide a worksite
Serve as an employer, hiring a hospitality student for part-time or full-time employment. Or provide a site for an internship opportunity, which is supported by OH&LA in a variety of capacities.

Do you feel like you (or your coworkers) start a million things, but rarely finish them? Many people think the problem is that they aren’t trying hard enough. So they get up earlier, guzzle energy drinks, or hire a life coach. For many, though, nothing works. In this session, based on the book by the same title, you’ll learn something surprising: The most effective strategies to help people complete their goals are not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite— they took the pressure off. If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: You can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work. Or you can come to this session and give yourself the gift of done.
