OICF’s GiveOrcas Campaigns run during the months of December (holiday giving) and May (OICF annual grants). During these campaigns, we invite the community to become “Partners in Philanthropy” and help us raise funds for Orcas nonprofits who are doing great work on our island. All organizations listed in the GiveOrcas catalog are vetted and approved. In addition, OICF covers all credit card fees for the organizations – so 100% of your gift goes directly to the organization you support.
With this model, we are able to fund more projects and help more Islanders. Your gift of $10, $100, or $1000 or more as a Partner in Philanthropy helps the entire community become stronger. In addition, the process informs and highlights many of the great projects that are happening on Orcas — it’s a way for people to learn more about the work that our nonprofits are involved, and help make them successful.
