Ottawa County Community Foundation celebrates 20 years!

Our member Ottawa County Community Foundation (OCCF) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Run by volunteers, the foundation is an affiliate of the Toledo Community Foundation.

“We have grown from funding $19,000 in our first year, to granting over $10 million, to creating 89 funds in the past 20 years,” said Joy Roth, volunteer executive director.

In 2018, OCCF awarded more than $148,000 in scholarships, and they annually fund educational trips to Stone Laboratory, the freshwater field station and part of The Ohio State University, for one entire grade level of students in each of the school districts and private schools.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, OCCF will host a celebration on Sept. 15 at Schedel Gardens. To learn more about OCCF, please visit ottawaccf.org/.
