The Bill Long Foundation is a membership-powered community foundation that gives grants to support projects and activities in Oberlin that address basic human needs or enrich cultural life. Membership in the foundation is open to all. Members elect volunteer trustees who manage all operations and award grants based on the vote of members attending the annual meeting.

Spring arrived – and so did the Bill Long Foundation Annual Meeting!  This year’s event took place on Wednesday, April 19th. Unlike the last few years, it was not conducted via Zoom. It was in-person at Kendal's Heiser Auditorium - a live together meeting much like it has been in the past.


The program kicked off at 6:30 pm with an informal "social”, followed promptly at 7:00 pm by the formal proceedings. 


The Bill Long Foundation Annual Meeting is a uniquely rewarding event that brings together our generous and caring members and many Oberlin organizations seeking BLF support. We hear about the good work being done in our community, and we make our unified voices heard in contributing support and resources to those well-deserving organizations.
