OCC is an institution that uses its resources carefully and prudently, yet also plans for growth and development so we are ready to meet the ever-evolving needs of the community.

You can help us achieve this goal by including the OCC Foundation in your overall financial and estate plan. A planned gift can have immediate benefits for you and can help the Foundation prepare tomorrow’s students for the world.
