Community foundation announces $12,700 in grants issued to local organizations

Osage County Community Foundation has announced that $12,700 was awarded to three non-profit entities in the Osage County area for the 2021 fourth quarter grant period. All grants issued will be used to benefit many youth and senior citizens in the area.

The foundation is now accepting applications for the first quarter grant period of 2022, which runs from January through March. OCCF makes grants for innovative and creative projects and programs that are responsive to changing community needs in the areas of health, social service, education, recreation, and cultural affairs.

The foundation offers grants through its general fund, which is made up of unrestricted donations to the foundation, and donor advised funds, which are designated for a specific purpose by the donor. As a donor supported foundation, OCCF also continues to seek donations to continue its work in supporting Osage County organizations.
