• Windemere Real Estate.

• Island Market.

• Orcas Island Fire & Rescue.

Congratulations to the game winners: Orcas Food Coop (1st), Emanuel Parish Hall (2nd), and Orcas Community Church (3rd).

OICF has two campaign games with great matching power thanks to anonymous donors:

July 2, is Ben Franklin Day, where every donation of $100 or more will be matched 1:1 ($40,000 max)

Friday, July 5, is Unique Donor Day, where we’ll add $10,000 for every 50 donors.

The campaign ends at midnight on July 8th; www.giveorcas.org.

“We hope everyone will support affordable rentals on Orcas…because it affects all of us!” says OICF staff.
