Osborne County Community Foundation

Matching Initiative

The Osborne County Community Foundation hosted the “Love Your County” campaign during February 2017. Every dollar given to OCCF during February up to $50,000 was matched by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation. With the help of the communities of Alton, Downs, Natoma, Osborne, and Portis, the Osborne County Community Foundation was able to raise $222,500.00 including the matching $50,000. The OCCF would like to sincerely thank everyone who gave throughout the month and made this possible. We would also like to thank the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for this opportunity. The Osborne County Community Foundation looks forward to building a brighter, more vibrant Osborne County!

Our Mission

Our mission is to build permanent endowment funds and meet charitable community needs.

Our History

The Osborne County Community Foundation was founded in February 2017, to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving benefiting communities in Osborne County. The Foundation is a permanent source of charitable assets to meet both emerging and existing needs of the local communities.

The Foundation believes that as a community we are stronger than we are as individuals. This belief is reflected in our rope logo.

“The idea of a rope– individual fibers braided together to make a stronger whole– inspired this design. The same principle applies in a community: many individuals and groups working together to do what cannot be done alone. The Community Foundation provides a ‘rope’ for this area, enabling projects and furthering creative ideas that might unravel without community help and support.”   – Pamela Harris, Designer

The Greater Salina Community Foundation was established in 1999 and is led by Executive Director, Bill Grevas.
