(This list is incomplete due to a lack of surviving records of SoonerCon’s earliest years.)

To raise funds for our selected charities, FSCOK puts on several different events.  While our primary event, SoonerCon, raises funds through its charity auction, it also contributes a portion of the membership proceeds. We also have other charity-dedicated events, such as gaming days, whose proceeds are used to boost the contribution amount for the year.

Want to donate to support FSCOK? We accept monetary gifts as well as collector’s items for our annual charity auction event at SoonerCon. Email giving@fscok.org for more details, or DONATE NOW/CLICK HERE.
