Okoboji Foundation Disaster Recovery Fund

On behalf of Dickinson County, the Okoboji Foundation Disaster Recovery Fund (DRF) has been activated as we recover from the impact of recent severe weather. 

The DRF provides an opportunity for the public to give with the reassurance their donations will be used to quickly move resources to where they are most needed and to adapt to evolving needs during times of disaster. 


Mission of the Okoboji Foundation:

Our mission is to be the center point of community giving, providing leadership and building beneficial partnerships to make a lasting positive impact in the Iowa Great Lakes area.
