Volunteers are worth their weight in gold and an important resource for any nonprofit. They share their time and talents without any compensation, and they are crucial to the advancement of the Otsego Community Foundation. We are grateful for our volunteers and would like to offer a HUGE thanks for the hours each and every one of them have committed to our organization. Words cannot express how proud and how grateful the staff of the OCF are to our volunteer family and how in awe we are of your dedication. We’d like to celebrate the following volunteers:
