    Capacity to support your giving today, while involving and preparing the next generation for tomorrow.

  • Flexibility
    A Signature Fund can support contributions of a wide variety of assets which can be invested through OCCF’s investment pool or in partnership with a trusted professional advisor.

As a financial advisor, I encourage my clients to consider a custom Signature Fund because of the flexibility and personal service it offers. I am able to stay actively involved in growing my clients’ fund with the support of the experienced OCCF staff to guide them in their charitable giving.”
