Oak Lake and Area Foundation
Since it’s inception in 1999, the foundation has donated nearly $85,000 to local groups and projects. Generous donations from local residents and businesses go to support the Foundation’s Community Grants Program.
What is a COMMUNITY FOUNDATION?
A community foundation is a charitable organization that allows people from all walks of life to make gifts that will support a variety of causes, projects, and charitable organizations in our local community.
How do COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS work?
Every gift made to a community foundation is pooled and permanently invested; the interest earned on these funds is distributed as grants. The capital is never spent, ensuring a lasting source of support for our community now and forever.
Oakview Seniors Club
The seniors club meets every Thursday at 1:30 for cards or shuffleboard, potluck the last Thursday of the month. For more information contact Marion Crampain at 204-855-2528.
