What is a community foundation?

A community foundation is a nonprofit platform for people of all means to make a lasting difference in their communities by supporting causes they care most about. OCF offers donors the opportunity to create their own named charitable funds, providing flexible, efficient, and tax-effective ways to ensure their charitable giving achieves the greatest possible impact, right now and into the future.
