Outer Banks Community Foundation



The Outer Banks Community Foundation was organized in 1982 to help meet local needs in Dare County and across all Outer Banks communities, from Corolla to Ocracoke Island. The Community Foundation accomplishes its mission by increasing charitable giving in the area, by managing charitable funds for individuals and agencies, and by targeting grants toward the community’s most pressing needs and promising opportunities.

Through its discretionary grants, the Community Foundation is the venture capitalist of the charitable sector in the Outer Banks, supporting the most exciting and most urgent projects which best meet community needs.
