The Community Foundation for Oceana County assists charitable organizations and individual donors with the management and distribution of funds intended to better our community.
There are numerous ways for contributions to be allocated through the Community Foundation. Scholarships, grants, organizational endowments, charitable gifts and support for non-profits are some of the ways to give.
The Cancer and Critical Care Fund offers grants to financially assist individuals who have cancer or any type of critical illness with medical expenses. The fund’s mission is to reduce the financial burden of medical expenses and other related costs. The qualifications for receiving grants are liberally defined so as many individuals as possible can benefit.
It is estimated that the fund will give 5-8 individual grants per year. The granting processes can occur at any time that a need arises. After building a foundation for the fund’s endowment, the Cancer and Critical Care Fund will be doing its first round of grant-giving in August of 2013.
For its first round of grant giving, the Cancer and Critical Care Fund selected three individuals within Oceana County and surrounding areas who will each receive a $500 grant. These grants are to cover any current medical expenses awaiting payment.
