O'Neill Foundation Grant
The William J. and Dorothy K. O'Neill Foundation is a private, family foundation whose vision is for strong communities where all families thrive and where their children reach their full potential. We realize our mission through partnerships with organizations who serve families in communities where O'Neill Family members live, work and raise their families.
The O'Neill family is involved in all steps of the grantmaking process, and members have a wealth of knowledge about their communities. This expertise is vital to all our grantmaking programs and assures that we have a first-hand understanding of the places where we work.
Our grantmaking process is a true partnership with our colleagues in the non-profit sector. We pride ourselves on working both closely and transparently with organizations through all phases of our proposal process.
