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. 

Bill Long Foundation's 2024 Annual Meeting in the Kendal at Oberlin, Heiser Auditorium.


Social with grant applicants begins at 6:30pm and business starts at 7:00pm. All are welcome, you can become a member or renew your membership for $10 at the meeting ($5 for students).

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.
