    About Us

    The Cresap family owned and operated Anheuser- Busch distributorships from 1968 through 2011. The family has a desire to give back to the communities that supported their business for 44 years, resulting in the formation of The Cresap Family Foundation. The intent of the Foundation is to support worthy charities in Central and Northeast Oklahoma.

    Foundation Mission

    The Cresap Family Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life of Oklahomans and beyond, through support of youth and families, health and wellness, education, arts and humanities, and animal welfare.

    Foundation History

    The Cresap Family Foundation was establised in 2012, upon the final sale of the family’s business, Premium Beers of Oklahoma, one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributorships in the United States.

    While the Foundation may be newly-launched, the family’s spirit of giving dates as far back as 1968 when a self-made auto dealer purchased a little Anheuser-Busch distributorship in Bartlesville, OK. And the rest is history.

    Application Process
