Beginning in 2015 local funding partners aligned their grant making efforts.  Nonprofits complete one application annually.  Additionally, each applicant has the opportunity to do a brief presentation  to share their story and answer funders questions.

“This result of working together enhances the benefit for community nonprofits by simplifying a process and providing a common platform that allows all supporters to understand the needs in our community.” Keith Moore, Executive Director of the Otsego County United Way. “The end result provides the potential for greater giving, and collaboration in meeting community needs.”

"Thank you to the Community Fund, Youth Fund and Dr. Patrick J. McNamara Fund. With your help, the Johannesburg Cardinal Club after school program is up and running. So far, we are averaging between 10 and 12 students participating each day. This would not have been possible without the help and support of the Otsego County Community Foundation and its members. Thank you from the Johannesburg Cardinal Club kids!"
