Call for Submissions for 2019 GiveOrcas Holiday Catalog

The Orcas Island Community Foundation (OICF) calls for submissions for our online 2019 GiveOrcas Catalog. Our goal is to partner with organizations to offer donors an opportunity to contribute to Orcas programs. Submit now to be featured in the sixth year of the 2019 GiveOrcas Holiday Catalog.

Again, this year there is no requested amount — just a bucket to be filled with donations! OICF will have a “Flat Person” and distribute $3500 in Games – we expect that you and your organization will encourage donors to visit the site and give to your organization. Our hope is that by working together the buckets will be overflowing.
