Support OCP in the Great Community Give!

Dear OCP Community,

By now you’ve probably heard about the GREAT COMMUNITY GIVE. This is a one-day event on April 18 created by our local Community Foundation to inspire online giving to local nonprofits.

How does it work? OCP is asking all its supporters to make a gift (minimum $10) on April 18 between 11 am and 12 noon. Although gifts are accepted all day between 6am and 8pm, we want to compete for a prize of $2000 for most unique donors during the 11 to 12 time slot. If you cannot give then, please give any time during the day. But giving between 11-12 will help us compete for the $2000 prize.

So… ADD US TO YOUR CALENDAR REMINDERS. At 11am on April 18, grab your credit card and go online to to donate. Voila! That’s it.

The Community Foundation has raised over $65,000 in matching monies to give away as prizes throughout the day, either to those who obtain the most donors or the most funds, depending on the goal of the hour. Prizes are also available to overall winners for the day. This is going to be a REALLY FUN DAY. You can watch the totals for giving to OCP and other nonprofits on the live leader boards at the same website.

And remember, in the end, this day of funding and prizes is not about what nonprofit does best, it’s about all of us helping to raise the funds needed for our community. So join us, have some fun, and put OCP on your calendar now for April 18 at 11am!
