About Community Foundation for Oceana County
The CFOC was established in 1989 by a group of community leaders who envisioned a bright future for Oceana County and established the Foundation as a vehicle to connect philanthropy with community needs and opportunities. For 30 years, we operated as an affiliate foundation under the Community Foundation for Muskegon County. As of January 1, 2020, we began operations as an independent community foundation and are grateful to have reached this 30-year milestone and for the partnership with donors, nonprofits and the community overall!
Over the past several years, the CFOC has experienced an exciting period of rapid growth and is continuing to serve the county through innovative partnerships with donors and organizations/businesses/communities. Today the CFOC manages more than 180 funds with total assets exceeding $18 million, and awards grants and scholarships totaling more than $900,000 annually. The Foundation’s contemporary office is located in beautiful Pentwater with a second-floor view of downtown and the lake. CFOC is one of 65 community foundations in Michigan and one of more than 1,000 community foundations across the U.S. and is a member of the Council of Michigan Foundations. The Foundation envisions an Oceana where everyone has access to resources to thrive. More information about the organization can be found on its website – www.oceanafoundation.org.
