Seeded with a $10,000 donation from OICF (thanks to Bob Henigson), distributions from this fund will support organizations that may experience an increase in demand for services during an emergency on Orcas. OICF will work with a team of community members to recommend distributions from this fund. Donations can be online, mailed to PO Box 1496, Eastsound, WA 98245, or dropped off at 44 Urner Street, unit #4. **Note “All In WA” in the recognition field online (or the memo line of your check) and your donation will be eligible to be matched.
 
Declare needs for yourself or your organization, offer to volunteer, donate, and get updated info. OICF will use this tool to match those who can help with those who are in need.
