Purpose and Activities

The Noble Foundation conducts its operations through the work of three operating divisions: 1) Agricultural Division - assists more than 1,700 regional farmers and ranchers in achieving their individual financial, production, stewardship and quality-of life goals; 2) Plant Biology Division - conducts basic biochemical, genetic and genomic plant research for the purpose of improving crop productivity and value, and enhancing animal and human health; and 3) Forage Improvement Division - translates basic plant science research into tangible plant varieties. Within the institution, the Forage Improvement Division serves as a link between the discoveries in the laboratory and the field, where such discoveries are intended to enhance agricultural outcomes in Oklahoma and around the world. Through its grantmaking program, the Noble Foundation assists community service, health research and delivery systems, educational and other nonprofit organizations through grants and employee involvement. The foundation also administers a matching gift program for employees of the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Noble Corporation and Noble Energy, Inc.
