Connect With OCF Staff About Your Proposal
In our continued efforts to make mutually beneficially process improvements and maximize efficiencies for busy nonprofits, we have created two ways for you to learn more about this cycle and receive personal attention for any questions:
A pre-recorded webinar will be posted by noon on November 29 on the Community Grants page, enabling frequent access for as many contacts at a nonprofit as needed. The recording will be segmented by subject, allowing for easy identification of specific questions.
If your questions are not answered in the recording or on our Frequently Asked Questions page, OCF program officers will be available during Zoom office hours, available by registering for one of two options:
Please review the Program Guidelines document for eligibility requirements and Community Grants’ definitions of “small rural”, “culturally specific” and “culturally responsive."
Details about the fall Community Grants cycle will be posted in late spring. We ask that you wait until then to reach out to a Program Officer if you are not eligible for general operating support this cycle and/or you are interested in funding for program enhancement, capacity building, and small capital projects.
For additional questions not covered in the FAQs and RFP, click on the program officer’s name to find their contact information.
