What is the North Oaks Community Foundation

The foundation's mission is to connect philanthropic interests with innovative projects.

These projects may fit in a variety of areas: education, environmental, athletic, and community focused activities. Peter King championed this foundation so that North Oaks citizens could contribute to the long term growth and viability of the community. He believed many people have ideas and want to participate in projects that would enhance our community, but that no vehicle existed to help guide projects from beginning to end. The NOCF can provide the bridge to connect, engage, and inspire the community so that we can come together to invest in the future of North Oaks.

Peter King passed away on March 14, 2011, less than a week after the NOCF's first official meeting. His inspiration and vision will guide this foundation into the future.  Read more about Peter King »
