The Grants Committee nominates organizations and/or projects to be considered for grants from the OWF’s pooled fund. Work groups within the committee conduct research in our charitable interest areas (arts, education, environment, health, and social services) and nominate appropriate organizations for members to vote upon.
The Education Committee organizes lectures, panel discussions and/or events to educate OWF members about needs in the Ojai community and the nonprofits serving our community.
The Membership Committee recruits and retains our OWF members. They interface with individual and group members to ensure they are well informed on benefits of membership and manage the Membership database.
