The Ottawa County Community Foundation (OCCF) is announcing its 2021 Community Grant program. Since the first Community Grants were awarded in 2003, the Foundation has awarded grants annually to local organizations that have identified important needs within our community and have formed a plan to meet those needs.
Through the Community Grant program, the Foundation strives to provide for the enrichment of the quality of life in the Ottawa County community and awards grants in the fields of education, social services, physical and mental health, safe and positive living environments, natural resources, and the arts. Funding for these grants is made possible from numerous unrestricted funds held by OCCF.
Nonprofit organizations located in or serving Ottawa County are invited to submit grant requests to the Foundation. This year, the Foundation is making it even easier to submit a grant application, rolling out a new online portal for accepting grant requests. Interested organizations are encouraged to submit their application via this electronic submission process.
Alternatively, applicants may download the Guidelines for Grant Seekers and Forms from our website and submit a written application by mail. Details on how to apply for a Community Grant may be found on the OCCF website www.ottawaccf.org/grants.
All completed applications, both online and mailed, must be submitted no later than the March 15 deadline, to be considered for funding. Questions may be directed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ottawa County Community Foundation is a public charitable organization created in 1999 by the citizens of our community to improve the quality of life for those who live and work in the Ottawa County area.
