Michael Morford, the organization's Executive Director, founded OK Invest in 2008 with the goal of increasing the understanding of the upper end of the financial literacy spectrum. Mr. Morford said, "The financial crisis showed that, collectively as a country, Americans don't know what we are doing with our money. Investing is considered a luxury for many, so philanthropic organizations largely ignore it. I decided that's how I could do something to give back for my good fortunes—by exposing Main Street to Wall Street." Mr. Morford has worked with institutional investors and other aspects of the securities industry for 15 years. He is a native Oklahoman.
As an IRS tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit, OK Invest and its parent organization the Financial Fluency Foundation seek to promote financial literacy and economic development in the state of Oklahoma.
