Urgent Needs Fund
The Community Foundation for Oceana County (CFOC) has established an Urgent Needs Fund to provide support to area nonprofit organizations, schools and governments on the front lines serving those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that we are in unchartered waters – the length and depth of our collective hardships are unknown. We do know that our foundation is here for the long haul and that community needs will expand and evolve through this situation. Our goal is to be swift to respond to the basic needs of today, such as food, health, shelter, education, and more!
Nonprofits providing services towards basic needs are encouraged to apply to our Urgent Needs Fund here.
Community Grant Rounds
We give grants to 501(c)(3) organizations, churches, schools, agencies, and governmental units serving the greater Oceana County area.
