Nonprofits asked to apply for OCF grants

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Charitable Foundation (OCF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, invites San Diego County nonprofits to submit an application to express interest in applying for 2014-2015 grants on the subject of community engagement: neighborhood leadership and voluntarism. The OCF has released its 2014 Grant Guidelines intended to advance the community aspect of living in Oceanside. The foundation is making a call to action to neighborhoods, nonprofits and community leaders to come up with creative solutions that engage people in addressing Oceanside issues.

During the next grants cycle, the OCF will make grants that help to catalyze greater leadership, engagement and voluntarism within our community. This year, the foundation is placing special emphasis on funding smaller organizations that are already “on the ground” within the community of Oceanside.

This Grant Cycle, the OCF will provide grants at $5,000, $15,000 and $25,000 levels of funding.
