Application for Funding

The O'Neill Community Foundation Fund has now raised an endowment fund totaling approximately $275,000 to benefit the inhabitants of O'Neill and its regional community. Each year, a portion of the earnings will be granted back to the community in the form of grants. Since 2005, over $68,000 has been committed back into the community for community and economic development projects. Each year, the Foundation Board intends to provide funding for strategic community betterment and economic development projects that will enhance the long-term success and sustainability of O'Neill.


The Foundation Board will prioritize funding for projects that are strategic, that create and include leverage, and that will likely not find funding from other government or charitable sources. The OCFF is an affiliated fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation Inc.
