Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You can run another 501c3 corporation under your originally chartered non-profit. You can have multiple non-profit entities under the umbrella of the main non-profit and you would issue the OK entity a charter which would state they are a member of your main non-profit and are operating under the auspices of the original MO non-profit. If you do not do it that way, you would open a new non-profit in OK that is operating independently.
