Onslow Caring Communities Foundation

The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. OCCF was founded in 2000 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Onslow County.

The OCCF, through the NC Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount.

The OCCF board advises the Onslow County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in Onslow County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities.

The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation joins more than 650 community foundations in transforming our nation and our neighborhoods through the power of philanthropy. 

Thanks to the City of Jacksonville for donating this stunning video to the Onslow Caring Communities Foundation.
