Grants


OTCF has awarded over 7 million dollars in grants to projects in our Valley from various funds, donations and memberships. 
As a community foundation, we hold multiple funds with specified purposes. Some of those funds are focused on a priority area
as defined by a donor, other are in response to community needs, and others are for individual scholarships.
