Around here, shared dreams have a way of coming true.
The Community Foundation for Oceana County currently manages more than 150 funds and makes grants to dozens of projects and programs each year. Every proposal we receive is carefully evaluated and grants are awarded where they have the strongest potential to help Oceana County become a healthier, more vibrant place to live. We work closely with area businesses, donors, organizations and individuals to support these projects. Together, we ensure that they make a positive impact on our community. The examples that follow are a few of our most successful initiatives.
