Support Specific Nonprofits


Donor Designated Fund

With a designated fund, OCF will steward your gift through our prudent investment strategy, awarding an appropriate percentage every year to support your named organizations into perpetuity.

This type of support provides an all-important income stream to support causes you care about. The intent of your giving is preserved even when charities cease operations. You may name contingent organizations or the OCF board will reapply distributions to a similar organization.
