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.
