This year make the holidays more meaningful. Give a gift to a friend or loved one that will make a difference right here on Orcas. Vetted nonprofits submit catalog items for you to purchase in a friend or loved one’s name. You receive a tax receipt and the recipient receives a gift card notifying them of your generosity, and valuable programs get financial support…and our whole island benefits!
Items in the catalog are listed by category: Arts, Early Education, Environment & Outdoors, Kids & Education, and Health & Services. Orcas Opportunities gift catalog open online from November 25 – January 1. Let the giving begin!
