					    Corporate Donation/Sponsorship Procedures
Since 1976 1st Bank Oklahoma has strongly believed in supporting the
communities it serves. We have a profound and long-standing belief in fulfilling
our responsibility as a concerned corporate citizen. We are dedicated to giving
back to the people and communities who have made us a success.

Criteria and Guidelines
1st Bank Oklahoma’s support generally focuses on public education and social
responsibility in the communities. In addition we focus on specific projects and
programs that we feel add value. Below are generally some areas we support:

      Education both secondary and collegiate
      Organized sports existing within public and private schools
      Civic and Community Services
      Some charitable not for profit organizations 501(c)(3) with value and
       positive impact on the citizens of Rogers County.

Types of Support
1st Bank Oklahoma will donate monetary, products and volunteer time. Amounts
vary according to need of organization and level of support determined to be
appropriate by the company.

Organizations Outside of Funding Guidelines
1st Bank Oklahoma receives many more requests for funding than the company
can support. A decision to decline a request does not imply that the applicant’s
program is not needed or valued, but simply that it does not fall within our giving
guidelines or priorities, or that funds are simply not available.

The company typically does not support the following:

      Organizations without 501(c)(3) status
      Individuals
      Travel expenses of groups or individuals
      Recreational sports organizations or athletic associations
      Religious organizations
      Political causes, candidates or legislative lobbying efforts



                                          1
      Organizations located in communities outside of 1 st Bank Oklahoma’s
       service area

Proposal Review Process
Requests for funding are reviewed by 1st Bank Oklahoma’s Corporate Donation
Committee, which generally meets on a bi-monthly basis. Decisions regarding a
request may take 6-8 weeks so please submit your request early. Organizations
will be notified in writing of any decisions made regarding funding.
