As a trusted community partner, the OCF creates a better future for all by pursuing the community’s greatest opportunities and addressing the most critical challenges, inclusively uniting people, resources, and institutions from throughout the community, and producing significant and widely shared and lasting results. Part of how we accomplish this is through administering the Community Grant Program.  

The Community Grant Program, which started in 2015, is a collaborative effort made possible by our funding partners: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation, Drzewicki Agency/Meemic Foundation, Kiwanis Club of Gaylord, Munson Health Care Otsego Memorial Hospital, Otsego Community Foundation, Otsego County United Way, Otsego Wildlife Legacy Society, and the Rotary Club of Gaylord. We are thrilled to announce that this year we granted over $127,887 to meet the needs and advance opportunities of Otsego County. In addition to this year’s grants, there are also commitments to several multi-year grants, totaling $53,700.
