We shortened our GiveOrcas Holiday campaign this year and, frankly, didn’t know quite what to expect considering the current situation. But wow; our community stepped up and delivered! Thank you. This year we raised $99,885 from 437 donors to fully fund 17 programs serving Orcas. What an amazing community. Whether you were a first-time GiveOrcas donor or a loyal, steadfast GiveOrcas supporter…we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for making this year a big success, sending a message of generosity and hope.

With Flat Haley Cruz Winchell as our head campaign cheerleader, GiveOrcas was 100% virtual this winter. Our game winners were:
  • Peggy Rhoads who was one of many who guessed Flat Haley, awarding $500 to OI Children’s House
  • Girl Meets Dirt was the drawing winner for Ben Franklin Day, awarding $1000 to Farm to Cafeteria
  • Unique Donor day was again a wild ride; $1000 went to Orcas Center, $500 to OI Children’s House, and $250 to OI Youth Conservation Corps
Wishing you good health and happiness in 2021,
Kate and the OICF GiveOrcas team
