A key part of this strategy will introduce new audiences to OCCF, such as donors and professional advisors (Philanthropic Strategy), and more deeply engage existing donor partnerships (Center for Engaged Philanthropy and Donor Relations & Programs). This includes transforming donor stories, along with OCCF team knowledge and expertise, into exciting and useful messages - and then disseminating them to targeted audiences. OCCF shares this information via various channels including editorial content, e-newsletters, social media, events and more.
