Samantha Otte Youth Opportunity Fund

Sammy and Lightening (600 x 434)

Samantha Otte lived a short but significant life in 10 years.

Those who knew and loved her were touched by her spirit and spark.  Those who did not have that privilege have witnessed how Samantha’s indelible imprint spurs family and friends to honor her life by helping others.

Advisors make grant recommendations with the fund’s primary purpose in mind which includes, but is not limited to, support for organizations which maintain and enhance community betterment and artistic, leadership and humanitarian opportunities for youth.

In January, the grants awarded from the Samantha Otte Youth Opportunity Fund celebrate her life and touch hundreds of area children.

Her spark and spirit remain bright.

One-page request letters for funding which meet the charitable purpose of the Samantha Otte Youth Fund should be submitted online through the Community Foundation’s website. Requests must be submitted to the Community Foundation on or before October 1 each year. Grants are awarded in January. While funding is not dependent upon submitting a request, the request form serves as a means to make the Community Foundation aware of organizations and programs.
Anyone can make a gift to any fund at any time to help it grow. To make a gift to the Samantha Otte Youth Opportunity  Fund, please click here.
