Message from the President


For the first time ever, the OSBF is providing up to $500,000 in grant funding to support initiatives focused on long-lasting impact and institutional change for racial justice. The Foundation's Racial Justice Initiative grant money will be given out in addition to our traditional fall grant cycle.

Hear President Kitrick report on this new important initiative the OSBF is thrilled to launch.


We are living in an unforgettable and uncomfortable time: the coronavirus and its wide-reaching ramifications, demonstrations, protests, violence, and destruction separating us in undeniable ways. Every segment of society seems to be in chaos and hurting. It's painful. When matters get out of control or are falling apart, we try to come up with causes, and then answers.
Hear from OSBF President Mark Kitrick on the important things to remember during this unprecedented time and what we must focus on. The OSBF is here and working hard on what we can do as a Foundation to help and make a difference.
