About Us


Baseball, basketball, volleyball, football, boxing, swimming, soccer, rugby, golf, tennis.... if it happens on a court or a field, in a pool or in a ring, our goal is to see all kids given a chance to participate in a sport at any level. It is our core belief that participation in organized athletics enriches young lives and develops future community leaders.

OCF, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is a leading funder of youth sports for kids from economically-challenged households throughout the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties.  Now in our 26th year, we are proud to have impacted the lives of more than 250,000 kids involved in athletic activities at more than 200 nonprofit organizations.

Grant applications from eligible organizations are accepted each year on a bi-annual basis. The review process takes several months, and grant recipients are notified in June and November of each year. Grants are also made to individuals through the Brian Ohleyer Memorial Award and the Athlete's Fund.
