The purpose of the O’Neill Community Foundation Fund is to increase community-based endowed assets, with future grants being awarded from the proceeds of endowments.
The Fund is dedicated to progress and long-term prosperity. A volunteer Fund Advisory Committee works actively to increase charitable giving and award grants to local worthy causes and projects that are addressing emerging needs and future opportunities in our community.
