Applications will be vetted by the OICF Grants Committee; successful applications will be featured in the GiveOrcas Grant Catalog in May.

All applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposal with OICF before submission. An informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at the Emmanuel Parish Hall from 3:30-5 PM POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER: NEW DATE TBD to talk about the application process, answer questions, and explain our funding campaign strategies.

OICF’s primary goal is to enhance and preserve the quality of life on Orcas Island.
